Is your TV not receiving any channels?

In order to receive all of the available channels, you will need to "reprogram" or "scan" your TV for new channels when you set it up in your room. Consult the user manual for your TV model for the specific instructions for an auto channel scan function. In general, you can try the following:

  1. Access your TV's menu.
  2. Select setup.
  3. Look for the option to automatically scan for all channels. Be sure the tuner is set to scan for CABLE TV or CABLE input (not antenna).
  4. Run the scan. It may take a few minutes as the TV looks for all available signals.

Cable channels

The University has its own cable TV system. The cable system extends to all classrooms, lounges, dining areas, and all residence halls. The cable system is a hybrid digital and analog system. (See the section below labeled "What kind of TV do I need?")

Find a list of all channels here.

Cable TV in residence halls

Every UD residence hall room is wired for cable TV, so you can take advantage of the cable system in your room or apartment. The cable system also improves FM radio reception for stations from Philadelphia to Baltimore.

What kind of TV do I need?

All cable-ready televisions will be able to tune the majority of the campus cable channels. All televisions made after 2006 that are digital-cable ready will be able to tune digital channels as well.

You will also need a coaxial cable to connect your television to the connector on the wall in your room.
