Coax Cable Type for running virgin through the house - CAI approved RG6??
I’ve recently had a new extension built and had the electricians run Coax cable to 2 wall points in the new extension for future TV use. I’ve looked at renewing my Virgin Subscription for the Ultra package which comes with a second box and wondering if the cabling that has nice and neatly been put in the walls and under the floor will suffice. I had them bring the new cabling up through the floor where the existing virgin media cable comes into the house and leave it with no ends on it just now until I decide what to do.
Have identified it as Deta Electrical 532BK RG6 Satellite Cable
Before I look to get a second virgin box is this going to be something the engineer can work with or would they need to lay their own cable and end up drilling holes to bring cable up through the floor. I’m loathed to do this given we’ve just completed the extension and may just opt to run a traditional TV aerial for the new extension.

Virgin typically provide materials free of charge to builders so that they don't use the cheapest cable they can get their hands on. You can try but don't be surprised if they refuse to use it and want to nail new cable to your skirting boards.
