One cable TV outlet is provided in each room. In apartment-style housing, one cable TV outlet is provided in the living room. To receive cable TV, you or your roommate must have a cable ready television set and a coaxial cable to plug into both the cable TV outlet and your television set. These cables are generally available in department stores, Best Buy, and any store that sells consumer electronics. Basic cable service is provided at no additional charge. Basic cable service consists of all of the local Philadelphia stations and a variety of cable stations. A listing of all of the channels will be available each semester on the Residence and Commuter Life Blackboard Community.
