In addition to watching the international channels online, you can access them via on-campus cable channels.
Notice: U-M has recently moved all of its channels to digital broadcasts. If your TV is not digital-ready, you will need to purchase a converter box. Most electronics stores that sell TVs will have them. If your TV is digital capable, you may still need to manually change it to use the digital band instead of analog. The channel numbers should not be affected, but some units may represent the digital channels differently. In that case, these LRC channels will appear in the "60-x" group, i.e. 60-1, 60-2, etc. For more information, please see UMTV Frequently Asked Questions.
