When you live in official UB on-campus housing, you get free cable, free premium channels and an automatic subscription to HBO GO and MAX GO that lets you stream content.
To get cable TV in your room or apartment, you will need:
Step 1: Connect your TV to the cable connection in your room or apartment using your coaxial cable.
Step 2. While TV configurations vary from model to model, in general TVs will need to have their input set to the “cable” or “antenna” option, and have their channels set to be auto-programmed or scanned in order to store all available channels.
Please bring your own coaxial cable to connect your TV to the cable connection in your room or apartment.
In general, students should re-scan channels once a semester to pick up any new offerings or channel changes. Configuration and features vary between models. A good first step in troubleshooting is to always re-run your TV’s channel scan feature, and to consult your TV’s documentation, which is often available online.
Many Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are also answered on our channel provider’s (Campus Televideo) FAQ page.
If you are still having service issues after consulting your user manual documentation and the above FAQ, you can submit service requests with our channel provider, Campus Televideo.
The campus cable network includes educational, entertainment, sports, music, news, local and premium channels. Campus Living has contracted with our cable provider, Campus Televideo, to offer a variety of channels.
If a channel is appearing on the guide but not on your TV, we recommend doing a channel scan to pick up any new content offerings or channel changes.
HBO GO and MAX GO streaming services are available for free to all students who are enrolled at UB and live in official UB campus housing. HBO GO and MAX GO provide premium content from HBO and Cinemax, including original programming, hit movies, sports, documentaries, and comedy libraries. Most of this content is available in high definition (HD), and can be accessed through your laptop or desktop, as well as through select tablets, smartphones, mobile devices, smart TVs and game consoles. Please note that some restrictions will apply when using gaming consoles or streaming devices from off-campus networks.
