UMN-TV provides a rich variety of 100+ channels of analog and digital TV content. It is distributed via coaxial cable TV outlets eliminating the need for set-top boxes. UMN-TV provides 80+ channels of analog TV, compatible with most any Cable-Ready TV produced in the last twenty years. Additionally, 20+ channels of digital TV are provided, including all of the major local broadcast TV channels and a limited number of other sports and entertainment channels (offered through DirectTV). Most of the digital TV channels are provided in High Definition (HD), while others are provided in Standard Definition (SD), with some in both HD and SD.
To receive digital TV channels, a TV with an ATSC or Clear QAM tuner is required. All TVs produced since 2007 should be able to receive the digital TV channels. Note: Some HD-ready TVs require external tuners. Check your owner's manual to see if your TV has a built-in tuner or will require additional equipment.
Any outages or changes in service will be reported here.
