Are TV and BB connectors the same?

Hi, we used to have Virgin here years ago but moved away after a lot of issues in the local area. I have decided to come back but the house layout has changed a bit since our last connection. 

We will need an engineer out as the box on the wall outside the property has been exposed to the elements for a few years. I also used to have my hub downstairs and TV upsatairs.

We are just getting Broadband this time around. The TV connection that was upsatirs is still there, this is where we are hoping to put the hub. Are the cables for the TV connection and the hub connection the same?

The [newish] V6 TV box has a short adaptor cable but apart from that they are the same.

Yes, I have an engineer visit booked. Was only asking as it would save time for engineer if the connections were the same as the TV connection sis still there. 

Thanks for the help.

A lot of techs will swap out the old isolators in the wall boxes for the new inline type, so you may have a new socket anyway.
