Explore some of the unique benefits of RLC below.





Custom-Made Platform

With our service, you have the option to hand-select your entire library of movies and TV shows. And not only are we the only company that lets you choose your entire content lineup, but we also let you brand your platform! Personalize it with your school logo, colors, and a one-of-a-kind name to create a unique on-campus experience for students.

Fully ADA Compliant

Better serve your entire resident population using our completely ADA-compliant content platform. Plus, residents can choose from multi-language options, including both audio tracks and subtitles.

Cost-Effective Service

Our streaming solution is a cost-effective option that gives students access to the platform at no additional cost to them. Plus, it can serve as a standalone service on your campus, or work alongside additional residence TV options as a comprehensive solution.

Largest Library of Films & TV Shows

We partner with over 90 percent of Hollywood studios to award our customers access to 25,000+ movies, plus thousands of TV episodes. Employing the largest library of content means there’s a title to interest every student on your campus, no matter their unique interests or tastes.

Engaging Custom Content

RLC allows universities to message, communicate and engage students through the platform to make it more than just movies. Use our unique Campus Clips function to add your own commercials, student-produced content, campus shows, and more as pre-show or standalone content on the platform.


PSA Partner Content

Students need to have the most up-to-date information to successfully take charge of their own health and safety. Yet, we know it can be challenging to get helpful resources into the right hands at the right time. That’s why we partner with the best educational content creators to help you effectively engage your students in important topics like Title IX, mental health, drug and alcohol abuse, fire safety, COVID-19 protocols, and much more.

The number of films available through RLC is staggering.
