Are there any special considerations when purchasing a new TV for a Residence Hall room?

If you are purchasing a new television, ensure that it is equipped with a QAM or Clear QAM tuner. Televisions that only have digital ATSC tuners will not work with the University cable television system. When shopping, look for the fact tag as well as the packaging information to ensure your tuner is QAM capable. The television manufacturer web site will also provide information about the capabilities of your television. This information is usually in a section titled "specification".

If you have an older digital TV with the QAM tuner, you may find that some channels have sound but no picture. In this case, you can get a ROKU player, load in the StreemeTV app and stream the channels.
