What are the requirements for watching cable TV?

Please note that as of Fall 2019, cable television is only provided in the 40 shared/lounge spaces of residence halls as well as in the Tea Room and student union building (SUB).  Funds, previously used for cable television, have been redirected to expand and maintain wireless networking throughout the campus.

Brenau University lounge areas can access a wide selection of both standard and high definition digital channels. If you are going to bring a TV for use in the lounge, you must bring a television with a QAM-capable digital tuner if you intend to use the cable service. Many televisions built in the last 8 years or so should have a QAM-capable digital tuner and you can verify it by reading the technical specifications before purchasing it. The televisions which will definitely NOT work are the old tube-type television sets as well as brands like Element, Insignia, and Westinghouse. Finally, please be sure to do a full channel scan on your television after it has been connected.

Please see the attached document for more information.
