Cable TV and Campus Movies

Davidson provides a standard cable television hookup in all residence hall rooms, apartment living rooms, and hall lounges. CAT-TV includes 61 channels, some of them high-definition, and the channel guide is available on channel 2. View the complete cable television schedule.

Connecting YOUR TV

Each residence hall room has one cable television hookup. If you live in a suite or an apartment, only the common area is activated for cable, with the exception of Tomlinson Hall pods, in which both the rooms and lounge have hookups.

To connect your television for the first time on campus, you will need a standard coax cable (available at the bookstore) and a DIGITAL television.

To connect:

  • Connect one end of the coax cable to the wall outlet (generally located in the same place as your Ethernet connection)
  • Connect the other end to your television.
  • Plug in your TV and turn it on.
  • Set up your television. One of the most important steps in this process is to change your input to cable and to run an automatic channel search.
  • After the channel search is complete, tune your TV to one of the available channels to ensure that it's working properly.

If you have trouble with your television hookup, email the IT Help Desk or call 704-894-2900.

Campus TV Movie Schedule
