USA’s cable system has been upgraded and the new service delivers all content in a digital format. The all-digital signal provides an expanded channel lineup and a significant increase in the number of high-definition (HD) channels. If planning to bring a TV, be sure your TV has a QAM tuner (coaxial cable not provided) in order to receive the new service. You can report any cable outages or concerns at any time by email (housing@southalabama.edu) or phone (251-460-7655). Please refer to the FAQ below the channel line-up for more information.

What equipment do I need to receive the cable TV service?
The cable TV service delivers all content in a digital format and requires a television set or conversion box tuner capable of receiving a digital clear QAM signal. To receive HD channels, you need a HD-compatible TV.

 

How do I program my TV to be able to see all the channels being offered?
The procedure for setting up your TV to recognize the new signals (channel scan) will be different based on the manufacturer and TV model. Please refer to your TV's manual for instructions.

 

In general, the procedure is as follows:
Run an automatic channel scan for cable channels. The scan may take a few minutes as the TV looks for all available signals. Once it's done, your TV should recognize all the content provided that your TV is capable of receiving. You can then tune to the channels just like any other channel. Remember, the specific procedure may vary by TV manufacturer and model and you may have to refer to your TV's instruction manual.

 

What are sub-channels?
Multiple digital TV signals can be squeezed into the same bandwidth space as a single analog channel--splitting what was one channel into several. Digital tuners see these extra channels as sub-channels, such as 7-1, 7-2, 7-3, etc. You can tune to sub-channels just as you would tune to a normal channel.

 

I don't have a TV with the required digital or high definition (HD) tuner. Will I still be able to see all the channels?
You will need a TV or conversion box tuner with a digital QAM tuner to receive service.
