Transcript Cable Comes To Dorms Residents Get More Out of Watching TV Many students had not found much satisfaction in watching plain 'ole TV in the dorms. After many requests, the residence halls were finally equipped with cable to spice up the tube for the student's viewing pleasure. Students may not have found total satisfaction in cable, but commercial after commercial was instantly eliminated at the touch of a remote control button. Fall '92 was the first semester to experience the ever-so- popular cable phenomen. "Students paid $10 per month for basic cable which included channels such as CNN, Discovery and BET," said Ahmad Kashani, assistant director of operations.

Kashani said talks and ideas about cable had been going on for about 10 years, but didn't get serious until a year ago. Video on Demand will be sought by frequent movie renters.
