Campus Cable TV


TS provides cable TV connections in buildings west of IH-35; you must have a cable-ready TV, VCR, or channel converter box (programmable for cable channels 2 through 76) to view programs. UHF channels are not usable. Programming includes educational, informational and entertainment channels and broadcasts. Many departments, colleges, and offices use Campus Cable TV for educational and informational purposes. There are also televisions in publicly accessible areas across campus for entertainment use. This is not residence hall cable.


  • Excellent for televisions in publicly accessible areas or in classrooms for educational purposes


Cable TV programming is available at no cost, but there is a maintenance fee of $274 per year / $22.83 per month for each device connected to the campus broadband system (this rate is effective 2/1/2015). Installation costs vary; refer to the cabling/wiring installation cost estimator.
