Cable and Internet Connections

Connecting Your TV

Be sure that your TV has a QAM tuner to receive the digital cable signals. If you are not sure your TV is equipped with a QAM tuner, please check the owner's manual or the manufacturer's website. You will also need a coaxial cable (preferably digital grade) to connect your TV to the cable port on the wall. Then you should be able do a channel scan to pick up the channels. Please view the current Nazareth Campus Channel Lineup sheet for channel information.
