System Status Update

10/15/2014 - Today we reallocated RF channels on our system to improve reliability. This should not have any impact to the channels on your equipment. Some TV's may require you to simply go through (channel up) all of your channels to update. If not, please rescan your TV before booking a service request ticket.

Otherwise, our system is fully operational at this time. Please see our Troubleshooting/FAQ or Setting up Campus Cable page before requesting service.
