Cable Information

A cable outlet along with digital cable service are provided to our Lincoln Park residents. To receive this service you will need a cable-ready digital QAM tuner television and coax cable. For assistance with the initial television setup, please visit our Installation Help page.

Cable Updates

DVR Option: TiVo subscribers can hook up the service with the College Cable system.

When you hook up TiVo, it will ask you for your zip code, and then it will display a list of cable providers within that zip code. College Cable will be listed with the name of your college or university (DePaul University).

TiVo does charge a monthly fee for their service. DePaul University does not cover the cost for equipment or monthly fees; it is the responsibility of the resident.

If you have questions, please contact us at (773) 325-7196.

Digital Channels

All channels on our cable system are digital, and those labeled HD are specifically high definition. In order to receive the digital channels, you will need a compatible digital television with a built-in QAM digital tuner. Please note, not all TVs have a QAM digital tuner, so be sure to check the manufacturer specifications before purchasing a television for use on campus. If your TV is not QAM compatible, you will need to use a digital converter box with a QAM tuner. A digital converter box is not provided by Housing Services.
