Campus Cable TV

In order to view the complete ONU cable television lineup, a television must come with a clear QAM tuner installed.  If this is not the case, a converter set top box is required.  The model we are currently recommending is the iView 3500STBII, which can be purchased for around $40 on Amazon.

We do not recommend purchasing a used model.  A firmware upgrade is required and can be performed at no cost by bringing the converter box to the IT Help Desk.  The process takes about 45 minutes.
Televisions manufactured prior to about 2009 generally require a converter box, as well as all Element brand televisions.
 

The Olivet cable TV system consists of local origination (ONU), off-air channels from the Chicago market (antenna) and satellite channels from DirecTV through our vendor, Apogee. Olivet owns the equipment and distribution system, and therefore Olivet is considered the cable service provider, much like Comcast or AT&T in the local community.  The channel mix emphasizes education and features the Discovery Channel, History Channel, C-SPAN and many others. There are also some entertainment channels including cartoons, major network stations, ESPN and others.

Program Guide

You can click here to get to the program guide.  If you go directly to Zap2it, set your location by entering "60914" as the zip code then selecting "Olivet University - Cable (Bourbonnais)" or for the high-definition programming, select "Olivet University - Digital (Bourbonnais)."  This program guide only provides the lineup for the main campus system. The systems for the Olde Oak and Stratford apartments are slightly different and have self-contained guides available.

Channel Guides

Because we use multiple sources for the ONU TV channels, the channel numbers for each station may be different than what is found in a home or other locations TV system.  Click the appropriate link to be taken to a listing of channels based on your campus location (note that Stratford, Olde Oak, and Oak Run Apartments are a different listing).
