Connect to Comcast - Cable Television
Instructions for setting up cable access on your television.

Your TV must support a coaxial connection and have a QAM-enabled digital tuner.




Please check your owner's manual for specific instructions. In general, you'll follow these steps:

  1. Connect your TV to the wall jack using a coaxial cable; use the input connection on your TV labeled “Antenna,”  “Cable In,” “CATV In,” “In,” or “RF In.”
  2. Plug the TV power cord into an outlet and turn the TV on.
  3. Press the “Home” or “Menu” button on your remote to access your TV's menu.
  4. Select “Setup” or “Settings.”
  5. Select “Channel.”
  6. Select “Auto Tuning” or “Auto Program.”
  7. Make sure you are scanning “Cable” or “DTV” signals NOT "antenna" or "air" channels.
  8. Select “Start” or "Run" and allow time for the scan to complete. This make take a few minutes as the TV searches for available channels. 

After this process, your TV should display the channels using the channel up and channel down buttons on your remote.
