RIT Housing provides cable TV to RIT Dorms and Apartments. Students will need a coaxial cable to connect to the Cable port in their Room. Students living in a RIT Apartment will have a cable TV jack in the bedrooms and living room.
If you are having problems see all offered channels on your TV, you may need to run the chanel lineup setup from TV menu to scan for available channels.
Cable TV Channel Lineup
Resnet Channel 20
Students can tune into Channel 20 on the RIT campus for support instructions for Game Consoles and getting other devices connected to the network.
HD Digital Cable Box
Students can contact Time Warner Cable for a HD Digital Cable Box at a discounted price (under $20 a month). Students need to contact Time Warner to activate this service. Students will have to pickup the cable box from the Time Warner Cable at the Mt. Hope office location.
