LIVE TV IN YOUR ROOM

If you just want to be able to turn on your television and watch what is on ... and you don't need any other features ... this option is for you.

SETUP | Your room is ready for you to setup BGTV when you move-in. In order to receive the full lineup of channels, your TV must be equipped with a QAM Tuner. For most TVs, after you hook it up, simply open the TV menu and run a channel search to access your channels. University Apartment Residents must use the Stream2 App in order to access your channel lineup. 

If you have any questions about accessing live tv in your room or other personal device setup, contact BGSU Student Connect. They have also put together a TV setup guide.
