Q - Will my tv work with your cable channels?


A - ETSU Cable TV has recently been upgraded to a fully digital system. Use of a digital TV or a converter box is required to take full advantage of the channel lineup.

If you have a digital TV, you will need to auto program your TV to ensure you are viewing all available channels.

If you have an older analog TV, your TV will only receive the 9 Analog channels listed below unless you purchase a digital-to-analog converter box.

Campus Televideo recommended digital converter box for analog TVs.

Information regarding the auto programming and converter boxes can be found on the Campus Televideo FAQ.
