Resident Select: PVN Movie Channel Movies On-Demand
- Start using Resident Select now! -
PVN is proud to offer the Resident Select service from Residence Life Cinema. Resident Select allows Penn users to stream to their computer many of the PVN Movie Channel titles available for the month. (Due to licensing restrictions, not all PVN Movie Channel titles are available for streaming on Resident Select.)
How Resident Select works
Open your favorite browser and enter this URL: http://pvn01.net.isc.upenn.edu/
After a brief licensing redirect, you’ll be taken to the movie list. You may also need to install the Widevine plugin before you can watch your movie. (If you're having trouble installing the Widevine plugin, please go here.) Click on the title you want, and it will pop up in the top frame. Use the controller bar at the bottom of that frame to play, stop, pause, rewind, or fast forward through the movie. You can also view titles full screen, using the control button in the bottom right of that frame.
Note: You can only use Resident Select while you're on Penn's campus, using a Penn IP address. If you're having trouble connecting while on campus, try disconnecting and reconnecting your laptop or mobile device.
That's right: Resident Select Streaming is available for mobile devices as well as your PC!
