Over the 2014 Summer, the University of Illinois Springfield upgraded the system that distributes the channels around campus to digital, providing the campus with improved picture quality, better integration with the RAVE emergency notification system, and improved our space saving and energy saving efforts.
In order to take full advantage of this all-digital system including high-definition channels, please be sure to bring a digital TV with QAM tuner for use on campus. A QAM tuner enables your digital TV to receive digital cable channels directly without a set top box. If you are unsure if your TV has a QAM tuner, please check with your TV’s manufacturer.
If you still have an analog TV (tube TV) you can continue to use it by purchasing a converter box.
For assistance with setting up your TV, or for more information on the upgrade, visit the ITS Cable Television page for assistance and important information.
