Xfinity

xfinityoncampus.com

As a resident student, you can stream Xfinity cable channels with the Xfinity Stream app on your Smart TV, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, and more.*

You can also sign up for a free Peacock Premium account.

We strongly recommend you not purchase additional channels, packages, or features from your student account. If you do, you will be billed both for time when you are off campus and cannot access the content, and continually after you graduate.

Coaxial connection (obsolete)

This method will soon no longer work. Please use the Stream Xfinity options, above, instead.

Your TV needs a QAM tuner to receive channels via coaxial cable. Some smart TVs do not require a coaxial cable (so do not need a QAM tuner). Also, neither a tuner nor a coax cable are required if you connect your computer to your TV.

Hardline connection (coaxial cable)

  • Connect a coaxial cable to the RF IN jack, on the back of your TV, and to the similar looking jack on the wall.

    • Some rooms only have a coax cable on the wall, rather than a jack.

  • Verify that the TV is on the television input; you can change/check this with the input button on your remote.

  • Scan for channels. The order and terminology of these steps may vary depending on your TV.

    • Press the Menu button on the remote.

    • Select Channel > Auto Tune or Auto Scan > Cable.

    • Then Scan.

  • Still not working? Check your TV for a QAM tuner.

  • Or, see the Stream Xfinity section, above, for other options.

Check your TV for QAM

  • Check your TV's Owner's Manual for QAM.

  • If you do not have a copy of your owner's manual, you can...

    • Call your TV manufacturer to ask if your TV has a QAM tuner.

    • Or Search Google for your TV’s Make & Model # (this can usually be found on a sticker on the back of your TV).

      • Find and open the TV owner’s manual.

      • Hold Ctrl + F (or command + F) then search for ATSC or NTSC.

        • This search should take you to a “Tuner” or “Antenna” section.

      • If there is no result, find another document that has a tuner section with one of those two search terms.

      • When you find them, look for QAM near them.

If QAM is listed

But you are still having issues, please scan your TV again per the Setup TV > Hardline connection section.

If QAM is not listed

See the Stream Xfinity section, above, for other options.

* Xfinity access only applies during semesters that you reside on campus and does not extend into semester breaks.
