Television Information

WVU provides students living in residence halls an incredible HD cable TV package. To make sure you can take advantage of this fantastic service, keep these things in mind:

  • T o 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 TV s have a built in digital tuner, and some older ones that do won’t work with the newest cable systems.
  • Old-style CRT (tube) TV s 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-7004 (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 .

If you run in to any problems, such as loss of service or channel availability, contact College Cable Services at 1-888-467-9004
