Cable television is included in the room rate in all University Residence Hall rooms and University Apartments. All rooms and apartments are cable-ready and will need a high-definition TV to take full advantage of digital and HD channels. An HDTV with a clear-QAM tuner is all that is needed (no separate set-top box is neccessary).
Common areas such as dens and lounges are also wired for cable TV and generally include a HDTV.
NOTE: Outdoor antennas and satellite dishes are prohibited.
Approximately 260 expanded basic cable TV channels are included, plus over 80 high-definition channels such as CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, PBS, Big Ten Network, ESPN, NFL Network, NFL Red Zone, Women’s Entertainment, BET, Comedy Central, Discovery, and more. In addition, over 40 digital music channels and a wide selection of international and native-language channels are available. Premium channel subscriptions can be ordered directly from Spectrum.
