Television Service

Drew residence hall in the spring.

Knox College provides Direct TV cable service to all students in residential housing at no charge. Student rooms/apartments are equipped with at least one standard cable outlet jack. Our lineup of more than 75 channels includes a wide variety of sports, news, music, entertainment, local stations and much more.

Students are required to provide their own television and standard coaxial cable for hookup to the College system. Please contact the Telecommunications Office at ext. 7171 if you experience continued reception trouble or station outage(s).

Televisions with analog tuners will no longer function on the Knox TV network. This should not be an issue if your television was purchased since 2010. A good rule of thumb:Nearly all flat panel televisions have a digital tuner and should work. Most televisions with a picture tube have an analog tuner and will not work. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule. If you are unsure, check with the manufacturer of your television. Our satellite vendor recommends the iView-3500STBII "Digital Converter Box". It is available through the Knox Bookstore.
