Cable Outage Brings New System

On Thursday July 28, Michigan Tech IT is transitioning to a new cable TV provider.  During the switch over, your TV may not receive any channels for a period of time as things are switched.

Once this switch is made, you’ll need to “re-scan” for channels on your TV.

Every TV is different, but generally you go into a setup menu, channel setup and there is an option to scan for channels.  The new channel lineup is located at

Other new features such as streaming to devices will be enabled in the coming weeks.  We will let you know when they are ready.
