Summer 2015 Digital Cable Transition

New Channel Line Up Now Available

You can also view the CCSU BLUE TV line up on www.zap2it.com

 

BLUE TV service to campus was upgraded to digital service over the summer of 2015. A new program guide is now available on the cable system channel 73.1. Additional channels have been added to the lineup and most channel locations have changed.  It is important to rescan your television or tuning device in order to receive the new digital lineup.  Please review your television to see if it has a Clear QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) built-in tuner (sometimes listed as QAM tuner). Locate your television model number and perform a search online using that make and model. Most manufacturers offer an online version of the operator's manual that will confirm if your television has a QAM tuner built-in. Please also consider visiting the Campus Televideo Digital Television FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page for a list of known televisions that do not have a tuner built-in http://campustelevideo.com/customercenter/#faq

If no QAM tuner is present in your television alternative solutions are available. One option is listed below. Please contact the Media Center for more information mediacenter@ccsu.edu
