Cable TV
Cable TV is provided to each residential college room. Anna Maria College utilizes Charter as the cable TV provider. Charter offers Anna Maria College 88 HD and digital channels. pdf Click here (23 KB)  for the Anna Maria College Channel Line-Up.

To receive all of the available channels, students should bring HD/digital ready televisions that are 720p or any variety of 1080i. Make sure your TV is plugged into a working electrical outlet. Connect one end of the coaxial cable to the TV wall jack and the other end to the “CATV” or “VHF IN” on your television. Do not connect to the “UHF IN” on your television. Your digital television must have a QAM tuner (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) to work with the cable service. The QAM tuner allows your TV to receive high definition cable programming without a cable set top box. Unfortunately, some less expensive TVs come with a low quality QAM tuner that may not be able to pick up all the digital channels. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV. To receive all available channels, students with an analog television may purchase a QAM Digital Cable HDTV Tuner/Receiver at most electronics retail stores.
 
A NTSC (National Television System Committee) tuner is not compatible. This TV will require a digital-to-analog converter box to view television signals. An ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner can receive digital signals but is not compatible with the cable system. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.
