Cable TV


Traditional Cable

OSU provides expanded basic cable television in our Residence Halls and Apartments. The signal is digital and requires a QAM tuner.  Most (but not all) televisions manufactured after 2006 include a tuner that supports both ATSC and QAM.


If your television only has an analog tuner or does not support QAM, you may need a digital converter (DTA) that supports QAM to view programming on the cable network. After connecting your television to the Coax cable outlet with an RG6 cable, ensure that the Antenna type is set to "Cable" and not "Over-the-Air/Antenna" in your television's setup menu, then scan for channels.

OSU View

The OSU View Channel is available through Traditional Cable (Channel 3.1), and on the Web. This channel will cycle through listings for upcoming events, important information, and social media posts from across the University. If you're looking for a way to get involved on Campus or just looking for something to do, OSU View may have just what you need. You can also visit the OSU View content page to find it quickly.
