Extra box in another room. How is it connected?

Hello.  I'm looking for information on how an extra Tivo box works in another room.  Is the second box hardwired to something? Or does it rely on WiFi?

Not sure I like the idea of WiFi as that means essentially watching TV through an internet connection doesn't it?

Been many years since I had a paid subscription service so I only remember when everything was wired.  Wondering how things work now.

Any help appreciated.  Thanks.

Nothing has changed. Each set top box requires a co-ax connection to the cable network.

Thank you.  Do you know what it specifically connects to?  I have virgin internet so I have a box installed against the wall.  Will it connect to that?  I guess both Tivo boxes will connect to the same thing?

Sorry for my ignorance.

To connect to the existing co-ax, currently servicing your broadband, a splitter would be supplied to connect a set top box for TV.
