TV Requirements for Compatibility

To receive cable on campus, TVs must be digital-compatible and have a Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) tuner. Analog TVs that are more than 5 years old may require the purchase of a QAM tuner in order to receive campus cable. Converter boxes are available from for conversion of an older set with an analog tuner.

 Note: Students will need to provide their own cords to connect their TVs to the wall jack. 

How Do I Tell if my TV is Digital Compatible?

You can tell if a QAM tuner is included by checking the documentation that came with your TV, or by looking up your model at the Display Specifications website.
