Bloomsburg University provides students with over 90 channels to choose from including high-definition and premium channels. Also included in with the campus television service for all on-campus residents are additional viewing options including access to HBO GO® and MAX GO® as well as Stream2 IP television.
We've also implemented a Campus Life Channel which provides the University community with information about current campus events, social media posts, news, weather and more.
Notice: Due to an ongoing contract dispute, HBO and Cinemax are not currently available through the television service. Students are encouraged to use the HBO GO® and MAX GO® apps to view premium channels.
In order to receive channels via the University provided television service, a television must contain a QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) digital tuner. Since 2006, most major television manufacturers have installed QAM digital tuners in their products. However, some budget televisions and manufacturers may still not have this capability. Some TVs that have shown the incompatibility include certain models manufactured by Element, Sansui, Seiki, and Orion as these televisions do not receive some or all available channels. Please check to make sure your television is compatible with our campus service.
If your television does not support a QAM tuner, you have the option to purchase a digital conversion box. Like a TV, you must make sure that the conversion box includes a QAM tuner such as the ATX VMX1-1*.
After you connect your television to the campus service, please make sure to run the auto program feature to ensure your television receives all available channels.
