To order Cable TV service, you would need to submit a request at the following URL: help.unc.edu and click on Request Service then choose Telephone. Note that you will be prompted for a valid chartfieldstring account when submitting this request. Permissions within Connect Carolina to request transactions, or billing changes, against this account will be required. The recurring cost is $12.50/connection. One-time costs are reflective of time and materials required to install the service, with time billing at the standard labor rate of $70.00/hour. Estimates can be provided prior to installation and when requested.
We provide support to all of our equipment from the handoff from Campus Televideo to the customer’s television without charge to the customer.
- If we need to install an outlet to the location that is desired for the service, we will provide an estimate of a one time installation charge to the customer.
- Once funding for the recurring fees and/or the installation charge have been established we will install the cabling and activate the service.
- If it is determined that there is already an outlet in place where needed, we will activate the service and place the customer in billing for that outlet.
