Cable television service is provided via wall jack to all residence halls at no additional charge to students. They are responsible for providing their own cable-ready television & coaxial cable (a 20ft length is recommended). For those receiving Digital (Standard and High-Definition) cable, the procedure for entering a two-part channel number varies by the TV manufacturer or remote control. Some use a dot ('.'), some use a dash ('-'), but there are other methods, too. Please refer to the operator's manual for your device.
Brookline Campus (Colchester)
There is a digital cable box from RCN in each room. Channel lineups are subject to change. The latest can be found on RCN's website.
Boston Campus (Campus Center & Student Residence, Riverway, Pilgrim, Longwood, and Peabody)
For Analog cable channels (2-22), any cable-ready TV is fine. To view Standard Definition Digital cable channels, your TV will need a "QAM" tuner, which is included in many TVs sold in the US after 2006. To take advantage of High-Definition Digital cable channels, it needs to be an HDTV as well. No set-top boxes are provided.
