Penn State Residence Halls Get A Jazzy New Cable Package

With all the improvements around campus (see: HUB renovation, IM Building, wi-fi in dorms), it’s hard not to feel jealous at all the new stuff freshmen get to use for their whole careers here. Well, prepare to feel more jealous! There’s a new cable package in the dorms, and it’s cool as hell.

On August 13, Penn State made the switch to an all-digital signal which drastically improved the channel selection for students living on campus. Students will now have access to 95 HD channels, 120 SD channels, and 50 digital music channels thanks to the conversion. Here are a few of the highlights:

  • NFL RedZone HD
  • National Geographic HD
  • Smithsonian HD
  • Fox Soccer HD
  • The HUB HD

It’s unclear what The HUB channel even shows, but it already sounds like something I’d enjoy watching. The music channels seem like a waste, but who am I to judge if someone wants to put on the smooth jazz channel on a rainy Sunday morning? In addition to the wide variety of channels that students will likely never watch (Disney XD? Seriously?), there is also a TitanTV app that has the program schedule for every channel on the cable package.

Be sure to check out the entire channel listing, and here’s more information regarding the switch if you have trouble accessing the new channels.
