Cable TV

Each resident room on campus receives cable television service, at no additional cost. Resident students also have access to the entire cable television programming lineup via Philo. Read the Philo TV page for information.

Cable TV can be enabled upon request in conference rooms for a recurring monthly charge. To make a request, administrators should contact IT Customer Care.

Cable Television Lineup

The on-campus cable service requires a digital ready television with a compatible NTSC/QAM tuner. If your television does not have this capability, an external converter box with a NTSC/QAM tuner may be used.

Cable TV services are provided and maintained by Privatel Inc., a nationwide cable television operator specializing in servicing colleges and universities.
