SunTV - Exclusive to Urban Study Newcastle

Category: Accommodation

For students or young professionals from China, living in the UK is a big change – the culture, food and climate are all very different to home. But for Urban Study residents, a SunTV box means never missing your favourite television show again and popular social media apps such as WeChat and Weibo at your fingertips.

Billed as a 'next generation internet protocol television solution', a SunTV box in your room allows you to stream content that would ordinarily be exclusive to China. This means that for those studying Chinese at university or working as a Chinese translator, access to this foreign media is incredibly useful. Best of all, SunTV is completely free residents living at Urban Study.

Urban Study Newcastle is the only accommodation provider with exclusive access to SunTV boxes for its residents. Want to know more about SunTV? Click here to download a PDF brochure.
