SPU offers conventional Cable TV service to all on-campus residence halls and most on-campus apartments. Cable TV programming includes local stations as well as popular national stations (about 120 channels altogether), most of which are in High Definition.
In addition to conventional cable television, residential students can watch TV programs on their computers, smartphones and tablets through the Comcast XFINITY on Campus IPTV service. More details may be found here: Watch HighDef TV Online

SPU’s Residential Cable TV services were upgraded in the summer of 2014 to include High Definition (HDTV) channels. This advanced technology requires every TV to support QAM-HDTV programming, either through internal QAM tuners or external QAM converter boxes. It is the responsibility of the student to bring a TV with an internal QAM tuner, or a TV plus an external QAM converter box to use the campus television service.
In order to receive the new channels you will need to program your tuner; simply scanning for channels by scrolling up or down will not work. Consult your owner's manual or see our Cable TV Setup FAQ for details on how to program your set.
