Hartwick's Cable TV System

Hartwick has its own cable television system which provides a mix of entertainment and educational support programming.

The channels listed below are provided in Hartwick's basic cable TV service.  If you have a  cable-ready TV with an NTSC ClearQuam tuner, you will have access to all of them.  All digital TVs sold today have digital ATSC tuners (for off-air reception).  Most, but not all, have the digital ClearQAM tuner needed to receive channels via the Campus' TV network.  We do not anticipate that you will need a digital converter box.  But If you do, you may buy one from Campus Televideo at: http://www.campustelevideo.com/studentservices/dci401.  Another option can be found at: http://www.amazon.com/3500STBII-Multi-Function-Converter-Recording-Playback/dp/B00GOILYB6

Not seeing all channels?

  • First, be sure your TV is set to CATV and not AIR (do this from your TV remote's menu settings).
  • Next, use your TV remote's menu to scan and add our channels to your TV.
  • You will not be able to use a VCR/DVD player to scan for channels. The TV cable must connect to your TV directly.
  • Some Vizio TVs need the "Auto Channel Add" option turned to OFF before scanning for the digital channels. Please refer to your owner manual for more details.
  • If that is not successful, please contact the TRC at 607-431-4357 or e-mail technology@hartwick.edu. Please be prepared to tell us your name, residence hall, room number and which side of room, and leave a phone number where you can be reached.

No channels or reception problems?

  • Reception problems are frequently due to loose connections. Please check your connections if you are experiencing poor reception.
  • If you have no channels at all, or if you continue to have unsatisfactory reception after checking your connections, then please use the link below to troubleshoot and open a ticket with Campus TeleVideo:
