Cable Television (CATV) for UT Austin Main Campus

Any desired location will need a coaxial cable connection, which can also be ordered, along with a digital cable ready television.  Departments, colleges, and offices use Campus Cable TV for educational and informational purposes in classrooms, public spaces, break rooms, and offices.


This is not the residential hall cable system.

Cable Channel Lineup



More information:

*  All cable channels are now digital, with a number of popular channels available in High Definition (HD).  Televisions must be digital and HD capable to receive the channels.  Picture quality will be greatly improved over the former service active before September 2016.


*  Click the following link to download the channel lineup: Cable Channel Lineup

Because it includes premium content (e.g. HBO and Showtime), some customers may wish to block channels or activate “Parental Controls”.  Capabilities vary by television, and require you to consult the television manual or manufacturer.


*  Charges for the service will remain the same until ITS updates its CATV rate review with the Office of Accounting (new rate expected to become active by the end of the fall semester).


If you have questions, please contact us: or 512-471-9238.
