SPU has contracted with Comcast to provide on-campus cableTV service and cableTV is generally available in most on-campus residence hall buildings and on-campus apartments. The current service offering provides approximately 80 viewing channels and the channel line-up is determined by the vendor and is subject to change without notice.

Student aren’t allow to contract for individual cableTV services in the residence halls. The campus system doesn’t provide any of the premium stations or digital channels. Most academic classrooms and many building conference rooms also have cableTV service provided.

Additional information regarding Comcast CableTV service is available on the web.

Common Problems:

Some television sets need to be programmed to be able to receive all of the cable stations. This is usually a simple on-air procedure. View the TV operating instructions or the setup menu's for assistance in programming your TV. Please contact the CIS HelpDesk if you are still having trouble. Additional troubleshooting support is provided from our cable operator at Comcast Technical Support.
