How was the channel lineup decided?

ResLife

In making a decision about a channel lineup; DISH Network presented JCU with a list of channels that were available, and they were given to the Residence Life Office for the purpose of deciding the final lineup. Obviously there are costs associated with particular premium channels, which can play into making decisions, all while remaining within budget.

Can I bring an old analog tv?

Analog-TV

Although it is not recommended, the answer is yes, but you must have a very specific type of digital converter in order to receive the digital signal. You can contact the system administrator for information about specific retailers who sell the proper converter.

 

If my television worked at home on our cable (or satellite system), doesn’t this mean that my TV is digital?

CATV-Box

Not necessarily. Most cable television companies offer a basic analog broadcast signal, or provide a set-top box to convert the digital signal to an analog signal for reception on an analog TV.

I am not sure how to set up my television. What should I do?

Remote control hold in hand

After connecting your coax cable to the wall-plate connector and on the back of your television, you are ready to program your set. All sets will program a little differently.

On many television brands you will press your MENU button, then locate the CHANNEL option. At this point, you may or may not be presented with the option to choose an INPUT. Your choices are usually “ANT” or “CABLE.” Choose CABLE and then do an AUTO CHANNEL SCAN.
