Cable Channel Guide
The campus residence halls are serviced by College Cable Services, Inc. Below is information provided by them about our cable service as well as the channel line-up.
College Cable Services is the cable TV provider for the University of Cincinnati. We are excited to offer UC’s campus with 92 channels, including 57 high definition channels.
Included in the lineup are a variety of entertainment channels, sports channels, local channels, and other options designed to appeal to a diverse spectrum of interest. You can see the complete lineup on Ch. 2.1 Teleguide and important information on Ch. 3.1 Community Channel.
College Cable is pleased to announce the conversion of the channel distribution system from analog, to a fully digital distribution network at the University of Cincinnati. The conversion provides a clearer signal, with minimal loss of clarity as it travels across campus. TVs manufactured within the past 5 years have a digital tuner (QAM). Nationwide all on air channels were converted to digital in 2009. If your TV does not have a digital tuner, you will need a converter box.
Remember that not all channels are available in high definition; channels in standard definition will appear less sharp compared to the high definition channels. There is nothing wrong with the signal or your TV, but you will notice a difference between the high definition and standard definition channels.
In order to receive the cable channels you will need to program the channels on your HD television. Instructions for programming channels can be found in the owner’s manual for your television. Below are a few simple steps to get you started:
- Connect cable cord to outlet in wall and into back of television
- In the menu of television, go to setup, switch from Air to CATV
- Scan for channels: Digital
