Cable Television services are provided throughout the campus, classrooms, and common areas. One cable television connection is provided for each room in the residential housing facilities. There are 70 cable television channels with 3 channels for Goucher instructional materials that include foreign news feeds such as SCOLA.
All students living on campus are eligible to receive cable television services. There are no additional charges for receiving cable television. Students are responsible for purchasing their own televisions and coaxial cables.
In addition to a cable-ready television, you will need a television coaxial cable long enough (10 to 25 feet) to connect your television to the cable television wall outlet. If you do not have a coaxial cable, you can purchase one at any major electronics retailer or at the Goucher College Bookstore.
I am connected but I am receiving only a few channels
Remember, you need to set up your television to be “cable ready”. Use the program button or menu button on the remote control or your television to insure that your television is set to cable and not antenna.
