Cable TV Overview
Cable TV service is activated in every dorm room, SLU, and Fraternity when you arrive on campus. You may obtain a cable for hookup from the outlet to your television. These cables are available from most department stores. If you would like the University to provide the cable from the outlet to your TV, please email the Help Desk at email@example.com.
Older TVs that lack a digital QAM (quadruple amplitude modulation) tuner will not be able to pick up all the channels. Most TVs made prior to 2006 are not HD-ready and even some newer TVs lack a QAM tuner. For example, some Element and RCA models may not be QAM capable.
You can use an HD QAM set-top box as a converter box and run the signal from the wall plate through the set-top box to the TV.
Channel Line Up
Ohio Wesleyan’s cable TV service is available in all residential halls, small living units and fraternities.
You must have a cable ready TV to receive all of the channels below. There are a number of channels that are available in both SD (Standard Definition) and HD (High Definition). If you have a digital HD TV, you can scan for these channels using the auto-program feature in the menu/channel settings. (Universal remotes cannot typically perform this function) The number and placement of these depends entirely on your specific TV’s tuner. Not all TV’s will receive the same digital/HD channels.
