Digital Upgrade Notice

Over the break, the cable TV system was upgraded to digital service, including 20 HD channels. Digital service provides the ability to bring you a higher quality picture and expanded programming. This change does not include cable TV service to the School of Divinity.

In order to receive the digital programming, you will need a digital TV with QAM tuner. Check your TV's manual or google your make and model, if you are not certain. If your TV has a QAM tuner, you must perform a channel scan (as cable, not antenna) to reprogram your TV.


If you do not have an analog TV and cannot view the new digital channels, please try the following resolutions:

  1. Tighten the coaxial cable connections to the wall and TV.
  2. Perform a channel scan (as cable, not antenna) to reprogram your TV.

If you are still experiencing issues, please contact the Help Desk at 202-806-2020 (M-F 8:30am-8:00pm).  Do not purchase a digital converter box before having an ETS technician troubleshoot your television.
