WVU provides all students living in dorms an incredible HD cable TV package. To make sure you can take advantage of this fantastic service, keep these things in mind:
- To enjoy HD cable television in your residential
rooms, you must have an HD TV with a digital tuner either built in or as
a separate unit.
- Not all HD TVs have a built in digital tuner, and
some older ones that do won’t work with the newest cable systems.
- Old-style CRT (tube) TVs will not work with
these new digital HD services.
- If your TV does not have a digital tuner built
in, or is an older model that is not compatible with the system used by WVU, we
recommend two options: the ChannelMaster CM-7003 (available at Walmart and
Amazon) or Pico Digital HD 2 (available online from multiple vendors).
- Make sure
to bring a coax cable if you have to
purchase the standalone digital tuner. We provide one coax cable to each
student, but you need an extra one to connect a standalone tuner to your TV.
