Barry University provides Cable TV service in the residence halls. The channel lineup includes a variety of news, sports and entertainment designed to appeal to all. In order to view TV in the residence halls, residents must provide a TV with a QAM/ Digital Tuner as well as a high quality cable cord. The Student Union office has these available for purchase.

In order to receive the cable channels you will need to program the channels on your HD television. Instructions for programming channels can be found in the owner’s manual for your television. Below are a few simple steps to get you started:

Connect a high quality cable cord to outlet in wall and into back of television

  1. In the menu of television, go to setup, switch from Air to CATV
  2. Scan for channels: Digital
  3. If you don’t have a cord, pick one up from the Student Union office for $3.
