Television Channels and Streaming Movie Service

For University Hospital and American Family Children's Hospital

While you or your loved ones are receiving care, you can pass the time by watching the latest movies and television shows or resting to one of the soothing relaxation channels. Our streaming movie service allows you the flexibility to start, pause or stop programming around your schedule. Please set your television volume at a comfortable hearing level so as not to disturb other patients. Most patient rooms have televisions equipped with closed captioning. If you require assistance, please ask your nurse.
