Davidson provides a standard cable television hookup in all residence hall rooms, apartment living rooms, and hall lounges. CAT-TV includes 121 channels, some of them high-definition, and the channel guide is available on channel 2. View the complete cable television schedule.
The Residence Life Office now offers a movie channel at movies.davidson.edu. All students, staff, and faculty may access it through the on-campus network from phones, computers, ipads, etc. An initial 100 movies are loaded in August and will be available through December. In January the line-up will change to a new selection of 100 and will be available through July. Most months there will be 4-8 additional movies added to the line-up.
Each residence hall room has one cable TV hook-up. 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 hook-ups.
To connect your TV for the first time on campus, you will need a standard coaxial (coax) cable, available at the college bookstore, and a digital television. The college does not provide either of these items to students.
If you have trouble with your TV hook-up, email the IT Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704-894-2900.
