Cable 8 went on air with three original shows: Live at 8, Video Underground, and a movie review show. Quickly becoming popular with the student population, Live at 8 won numerous national broadcasting awards and even had a guest appearance from actor Rob Schneider.

Over the years, Cable 8 has grown considerably in its facilities, responsibilities, and general programming.
