Apogee is Stony Brook University's cable television provider.
In Fall 2016, Stony Brook University switched to Apogee TV as their cable television provider. The result of this was an increase in channels, at no additional cost for students. This is also the first step towards a Stony Brook Streaming Service for students to access all channels on mobile devices. Student can download our SBU TV Guide for Apogee graphic and save to their devices, or visit the DoIT Cable TV Service Page for channel listings.

To connect your gaming and certain other devices to the internet, you may need to use the new WolfieNet-IoT network.
For security reasons, the WolfieNet-Open network is being decommissioned. WolfieNet-Secure has and will remain to be the preferred network to use to get online. All modern phones, laptops, tablets, and computers are compatible with this network. For other devices like wireless gaming consoles, there is the WolfieNet- IoT network. This new network will allow devices to get online if they are incompatible with the preferred WolfieNet-Secure network.
Simply visit the https://reg.noc.stonybrook.edu/guest link to register your device for up to 1 year on the WolfieNet- IoT network.
