Television Overview

Introduction

Miami University provides approximately 150 channels of entertainment, information, and educational television programming via two different systems, Cable TV and Internet Protocol Television (IPTV).  Cable TV service is available in most residence halls, academic buildings, and other campus locations. Internet Protocol Television (IPTV)—Philo—service is provided to students living in the Oxford campus residence halls.  Philo offers the identical channel lineup as Cable TV but also has a DVR service.

Cost

There are no direct charges to students or departments for cable TV or IPTV service through existing MUnet video jacks.

Additional Resources

Cable TV

  • What type of technology will I need to use this service?

    • Use a digital television with a QAM digital tuner. (You can purchase a converter from popular electronics retailers.)

  • How do I get started?

    • Connect your TV/device to the coaxial V1/V2 jack or Z-Band GigaBOB dongle. (Note: Your Z-band must be clipped into the D2 data jack.)

    • Set your TV/device input mode to CATV, cable, or (on some models) STD.

    • Run the auto-program feature to make sure your television is receiving all Miami channels.

Internet Protocol Television (IPTV)—Philo

  • What type of technology will I need to use this service?

    • You can watch Philo online via most popular web browsers, or on Android and iOS native apps available for free download to your mobile devices.

    • You can also watch Philo on traditional TV sets through a Roku device, or via iOS 6+ mobile devices, or compatible Mac computers.

    • Access Philo by going to miamioh.philo.com and signing in with your Miami credentials.

Philo Support can tell you most everything you want to know.

The cable TV system will remain in place, and students who prefer it can still use the service. Televisions located in academic buildings, offices, and other public buildings, like Goggin Ice Arena and the Rec Sports Center, will also continue to be served by the campus cable TV system.
