ResNet HD digital "Wired" Cable TV in your Room
If you're not using XFINITY On Campus™ to stream to your computer or mobile device, you can still watch the old fashion way, by connecting your TV to the cable jack in your room. The residence halls are equipped with HD digital cable TV powered by Comcast, providing nearly 100 high definition channels. The cable service is active and does not require sign-up, activation, or use of a cable box. However, before you can begin viewing, you must configure your TV tuner and run a channel scan. Your TV must be able to accept a coax cable input and be equipped with a QAM digital tuner. In simple terms, your TV must be able to receive unencrypted or clear HD digital cable TV channels without use of a cable box. Most brand name digital / flat screen televisions have been equipped to meet these requirements since the FCC mandated that all televisions support digital channels beginning in the year 2007.
