 Please consult your TV’s manual to search for all updated channels.

Frequently Asked Questions -

What do I need to start watching cable television?

  • A coaxial cable.
  • A television with a QAM digital tuner.
  1. Connect the coax cable between your television and the wall jack.
  2. Power on your television.
  3. Run an "Auto-Program" or "Channel Scan", making sure that your TV is configured for "Cable TV" and "Digital", not "Antenna" or "Analog".
  4. Start watching!

 

I've run a channel scan. Why can't I pick up any channels?
University Housing Services recently transitioned to a digital cable TV system. It's possible that your television does not possess a QAM digital tuner and is unable to process the cable TV signal that is being delivered. (Prominent television manufacturers began including QAM tuners around 2006.)
Older televisions without QAM tuners will NOT work with the new cable television system.

What if my television doesn't have a QAM tuner built in?
If your television does not have a digital QAM tuner, you may be able to purchase a separate external tuner from a electronics store to convert the digital signal to analog.
