Change where the TV cable comes into the house

What's the recommendation about moving my TV cable entry point so it sits in a different place?

 

I'm redecorating my living room and want to shift it out of sight, either behind the TV itself, or one of the units it'll sit on.

 

That's about 3 feet to the right and foot higher than it is now.

 

Can I do it myself, or do VM have to do it?

And if it's a VM job, is there a charge for it?

Gosh that's a bit steep! Is,not like I need a complete re-route or for it to go completely the other side of the house.

I reckon I could do it myself, does that invalidate anything, cause any problems, or get me in trouble...?

Not much!

 

A) The cables are Virgins property. Its against T & C's to mess with them.

 

B) The coaxial cable is a specially made, triple screened variety that is not available over the counter.

 

C) The reason for B above is that the frequency spectrum Virgin use is also used by over-the-air broadcasters. Any ingress of these signals into the cable not only degrades your services, if it gets back to the street cabinet it will affect everyone else's as well.

 

Virgin's callout charges are comparable with any other utilities.
