Connecting My TV to Campus Cable

 

To access the campus cable system, your TV will need to have a QAM digital tuner pre-installed. TV's manufactured after 2006 typically fulfill this requirement. Please note that we have seen in the past that some TV manufacturers will not include a QAM tuner in certain models when producing TVs for special sales (Black Friday, etc.) to help keep the cost down. Here are common brands that are known to not have a QAM tuner: Element, WestingHouse, Emerson, and Sansui. Please check the owner’s manual for exact details.

If your TV does not have a digital QAM tuner installed, you can purchase a third-party QAM tuner to allow your TV to receive campus cable channels.

To receive campus cable channels, you will need to run a channel scan (sometimes called auto program) on your TV so the TV can accurately search the new signal and find the necessary channels.

If you're interested in what channels are available, you can download a channel guide below.

If, after a couple of attempts, you are not able to receive cable, please contact the NATS Help Desk at 402-375-7107 or helpdesk@wsc.edu. Please keep in mind that if the issue is TV related and not with your cable outlet that staff cannot repair or assist you with your personal equipment.
