How to Install CATV Wiring

Derived from the term "cable antenna television," CATV is now popularly referred to as cable television. CATV provides television to millions of consumers through coaxial cables running from the cable television company to the cable TV box inside your home. Installing cable TV inside your home is not a difficult task and doing it yourself can save you some cash. 

Things You'll Need

Cable TV subscription
Cable staples
Coaxial cable patch cord
Cable box
Television

Step 1

Hold the coaxial cable installed by the cable TV provider and run it neatly along walls, baseboards or across ceilings to your television. Fasten the cable onto surfaces using cable staples every 12 inches along the route.

Step 2

Place the cable TV box supplied by your cable TV provider on top, or beside your TV set.

Step 3

Hold the coaxial cable, then plug the coaxial cable connector at its end to the jack marked "Video In" at the back of your cable TV box. Screw the connector clockwise to tighten and secure the connection.

Step 4

Plug one end of the coaxial patch cable supplied with the cable TV box into its corresponding port marked "Antenna" on the rear of your TV set. Screw the connector clockwise to tighten and secure the connection.

Step 5

Plug the other end of the patch cable into the jack marked marked "Video Out" on the back of the cable TV box. Screw the connector clockwise to tighten and secure the connection.

Turn on the television and the cable TV box and tune the channels following the instructions in your cable TV provider's instruction manual.

  1. Maintenance pricing is a percentage of the SRP of the product for which maintenance is being purchased for the first twelve months typically around 20.Maintenance ProgramsMaintenance will always be quoted as a percentage of SRP rather than of netor purchase price. Purchasing twenty-four months of maintenance and support is a better option from a pricing standpoint,if you would like the longer term coverage. Pricing for maintenance terms beyond twenty-four months will be provided upon request.
