Cable Television Channels
Cable television service is provided for every room in student housing. Listed below are the channels provided by the Department of Telecommunications. All channels are provided in a digital format. Please reprogram your television when arriving on campus to ensure you are receiving all channels. Manufacturers will display the channel differently from others so please reference the list below for the two formats your television will display your program. Please refer to the manufacturer's instructions to configure your specific television.
All televisions on campus must contain a QAM tuner to receive the digital channels. Those who do not have a digital ready television (flat panel, etc...) can use a convertor box, DVD player, or DVD/VCR combo which has a QAM tuner. The majority of flat panel or flat screen televisions that are manufactured at this time have a QAM tuner however please ask that question before making your purchase of a new television.
If you choose to purchase a convertor box the iView 3500 STB has been found to work well on campus and is affordable. This model has the QAM tuner. The unit can be found online for approximately $45 shipped. Be sure to select the cable option when programming this convertor box as the default selection is antenna or air out of the box. If you choose to have the box scan channels while antenna or air is selected then no channels will appear. Be sure to select the cable option in setup before letting the convertor box initiate a channel scan.
