How do I access cable TV in my room or apartment?
All student rooms and apartments are equipped with an active CATVision outlet. The service is included as part of the housing fee and there is no additional cost. Using a standard coaxial cable (also called an RF cable), connect your television to the wall outlet. You must have a digital TV that comes equipped with a QAM tuner. You may have to manually switch your television from "antenna" or "broadcast" to "CATV" or "Cable" before preforming a scan for channels. This can be done using your television's menu, the menu usually can be reached using the buttons on your TV or by using your remote control. Please note that some universal remotes may not be able perform this function.
If you continue to have difficulties connecting your cable, please refer to our Trouble Shooting page for further instructions and to access our online work request form.
