    What do colleges typically have as far as TV quality is concerned? HD, SD? Mine has SD TV (proprietary cable) but the surrounding area has HD I believe.

    Someone is still broadcasting in SD? I haven't seen an SD TV in years.

    But what's really common in college? Watching HD shows on your computer through legal gray area websites.

    I find that to be most common myself. But on my campus we use HD TVs

    When I was in college, you only got cable TV if you called the cable company and had them install it. And my roommate and I were the only ones in either building that had it, because we were the only ones willing to pay for it. Same with phone service.

    Party at our room just about every night, it was. Good times!

    Dorms suck move off campus.

    I do know my college had HD in the dorms when I graduated, but I didn't live on campus. That was a couple years ago.

    When I was in the towers you didn't get cable or a phone. I you needed a phone there was a pay phone in the hall. I honestly can't remember ever seeing a TV anywhere on campus other that the student union.
