Each residence hall room is served by the Virginia Tech cable television system. The cost of cable television programming is included in your comprehensive student fees. You will not receive a bill for cable television service. Problems with television reception should be referred to the Virginia Tech Operations Center (VTOC) at 1-6780.
The cable television system currently has 60 channels of which channels 2-4, 14, 15, and 35 are reserved for instructional use. The Student Channel, channel 33, has a variety of student-produced programs and carries information on student activities and programming from VTTV Student Television. Channel 2 displays information on other cable television programming and carries inclement weather news and updates.
Virginia Tech Cable Television Set-up
If you have a cable ready TV, you may connect your TV directly to the cable outlet in the wall with a coaxial cable. This can be a TV with a digital or analog tuner. Be sure that your coaxial cable is long enough to connect from the wall outlet to the TV.
