CableTV Service

Telecom provides CableTV service to all main Campus Housing residents and most academic and administrative buildings on campus.

If you encounter problems with your CableTV service, first reference our Troubleshooting Guide for assistance. If the difficulty persists, contact the Telecom Service Line at 412-268-8500.

Note: CableTV service is not supported or provided through the Carnegie Mellon network.  If you have a tv tuner installed on your computer, you can try to connect using the manufacturer's instructions. 

Campus Housing Residence Buildings

CableTV service is part of your Housing agreement and is offered at no additional charge. Simply connect your cable-ready television to view over 90 channels of programming.

  • Residents of Shady Oak apartments receive the campus CableTV service and should follow the campus channel lineup.
  • Residents of the Oakland Apartments are provided with CableTV service through a special agreement with Comcast. These residents should use the Comcast Channel Lineup.
    Note: Comcast may change their channels at any time.

Academic and Administrative Buildings

CableTV service is available in most main campus administrative and academic buildings for a fee of $10.48 per month. 

Although CableTV service is available in most campus buildings, this does not mean that a particular room contains an outlet for the service. Please see your department's Telecom Administrator to obtain an estimate to install service into your room.
