Office of University Housing


Florida A&M University Housing offers High Definition (HD) "expanded basic" cable television services to all on-campus residential facilities. Residents will need a television with a tuner clear QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) to receive the high definition service in the residence halls. Please note most TVs purchased since 2007 will have a clear QAM tuner. 

Most brand name televisions brought after 2007 should work. (LG, Samsung, Sharp, & Vizio, etc.,). However, we have found some television brands with specific models that may not work correctly,
such as, Element, Emerson, Westinghouse, Seiki, etc.; also tube/box televisions will not work. (See additional television brands and models in the chart below).

The below converter/tuner boxes are recommended for use on campus. However, we can NOT guarantee that a converter box will work with your TV or that the box will deliver a clear signal on the same channel lineup. We suggest that you use a TV with a compatible Clear QAM tuner to receive HD cable on campus.

Televisions should be able to access at least 135 channels. If your TV doesn’t have a tuner clear QAM built into the TV, a converter tuner will need to be used/purchased. To view the Channel Line Up, click link below.



Note:  PHD-208 (Advanced Digital HDTV Tuner Receiver) is a tuner receiver that we use on campus.
