Cable Channel Guide

The campus residence halls are serviced by a CATV system . The Basic Universal Service channels listed below are provided as a convenience of occupancy for residents. Just like hotel service, you will not be charged any extra for your room because you connect. Also like hotel service, you will not receive any discount if you do not use the service. This type of service enables us to provide a balance between costs and benefits that we think best meets the requirements and expectations of the resident population.

The following channels are provided as a convenience of occupancy in the residence halls:

Equipment Needed

Your television and/or VCR/DVR equipment must be cable-ready to receive all Basic Cable channels available. If your equipement is not cable-ready, you will not be able to receive all of the Basic Channels available.

NOTE: You should refer to your equipment manuals, or to the place of purchase to determine whther your television or VCR/DVR equipment is cable-ready.

Digital Channels

Residents have access to several Free (In-the-Clear) Digital Channels that broadcast at disigital (HD?SD) quality. To receive and view these Digital Channels, your TV must have a digital tuner that will receive and decode CATV QAM signals. If you have a digital monitor or a TV that does not have the appropriate built-in tuner, you will need to purchase a CATV QAM digital tuner/receiver from a local electronics store.* Digital tuners/receivers are not available from the Office of the CIO. If you have a Time Warner Cable Digital Set-top Box, you will receive these Free (In-the-Clear) Digital Channels on different channel numbers, which are denoted with ** on the channel line-up.

*NOTE: Depending on the manufacturer of the digital tuner purchased, you may need to enter each free digital channel number into memory manually or you may be able to do a scan of the channels and then save them into your equipment’s memory. In addition, QAM tuners that only retrieve CATV frequencies and ATSC tuners will NOT work; therefore, these tuners are not recommended. If these types of tuners are used, they may not properly retrieve the free digital channels available. Check your equipment manuals from the manufacturer to verify the type of tuner and its capabilities. The Office of the CIO may bill a customer for time and labor if our technician does a site visit per a customer request and it is determined that the customer’s equipment is the cause of the problem.

Ordering Premium Cable Services

The Optional Digital Cable Services must be ordered directly from College Cable Services, and you will receive a College Cable Services bill each month for any Digital Cable Options you order.
