New cable on install only for TV

We are about to move house after refurbishing a property.

We arranged for an engineer to come out to install cable for TV and internet and our builder explained where the cable needed to go. The engineer left and came back when the property was empty and installed the cable not where instructed.

Our builder has checked the cable and there only appears to be a cable for the TV.

Does the Internet cable get pulled on the day? Can we have the TV cable moved on the day of connection?

Hi

Our TV, Broadband and telephone all run through the one cable now. If the engineer hasn't put the TV cable in the correct place then yes you can request it to be moved on the day of the installation.

 

hope that helps

Hi

Thanks for coming back to me, so the same cable goes to the router and the TV box?

The installer will fit a splitter and separate cables to the two devices. 

Make sure that the installer knows exactly where you want the two boxes to be located, so that the correct length of cables is fitted.

Re: New cable on install only for TV

So does the RG59/6 cable do both jobs? Or is it a Cat6 cable?

The RG6 co-ax cable does both jobs.  One for the Hub and one for the TV.  For optimum results an additional Cat 6 cable from the Hub to the TV box is preferred to connecting it by wifi, as the cable is not susceptible to interference.  However you will have to supply Cat 6 cable this yourself if you decide to use this method.
