AMU Cable - Free High Definition!

With AMU Cable TV And A QAM Tuner TV, You Can Enjoy Limited High Definition Programming At No Charge

Are you   interested in receiving high definition TV WITHOUT the need for a special high-definition cable box? AMU Digital Cable makes that possible IF you have the correct type of Television!

All new DIGITAL TV's and most manufactured in the past two years have an integrated QAM tuner. A QAM Tuner allows the TV to tune into the special cable channels that AMU uses to send out unscrambled signals from local TV stations.

A QAM tuner will only tune to channels that are unscrambled. Other scrambled (or encrypted) digital cable channels require a subscription to AMU Digital Or HD Cable service and a set-top box.If you would like to receive any of the other great high definition channels on the AMU lineup, like the Big Ten Network, HD Theater, ESPN, NFL, and others, you'll want to upgrade to the AMU HD tier.
