Not all setups are the same. Please consult your television's owners manual for proper setup of digital cable reception.

System Status Update

New channels are now on our system! In order to receive these channels, a rescan will be required. Until a rescan is completed, a few channels may be missing. Check out the Channel Guide page for the new list! And remember to always rescan your TV at the start of each semester!

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

Important system information is also announced on Twitter and Facebook. Be sure to follow us for news and updates!
