Re: Should You Still Wire For Cable TV

I look at it this way a box of bulk coax is 60$ or less I can pull 3 wires just as easy as 2.

A extra keystone jack and your talking a total of 80$ extra to run coax to any place you are running erhernet.

We run cable to a “OnQ” panel with smurf tube running from top to bottom on the house just in case they want more drops. We run RG6 & cat6 to the living room, rec room and master bedroom standard.

Re: Should You Still Wire For Cable TV

We don't run cable.

We do, however, install boxes and install conduit, when possible.

Depends on location. We are a long way from wireless, here. Most internet is still extremely slow. My mother's internet is less than 1mbps.

I let the cable/dish company run their own wires. I will install boxes, chases, covers, where the homeowner wants.

Someday it will all be wireless. I'm ready for it.

Any time now we are going to see the demise of RF over coax TV for "over the top" IPTV which works like Netflix or Hulu. That means CAT6 and WiFi, no more coax.
