Using powerline adapters with 360

I'm new to Virgin Media and was delivered a self-install kit that I'm having a problem with.

The wall box was already in situ when I moved into the house and I imagine this is why I was sent a self - install. The problem is that the wallbox is in one room and I want to install the TV in a different room at the opposite end of the house. In a previous thread it was suggested that I call for a technician and I do have an appointment in January. The landlord is not happy though at the thought of a hole being drilled in the relevant wall and I'm in total agreement now I've heard his explanation.

Would it work if I was to use powerline adapters to get around the problem? I had in mind TP-Link but am open to suggestions. 

TIA

No, all Virgin Media boxes require co-ax connection. You do need an engineer to install this.

Thanks Ernie_C. I'd missed that. I'm stuffed then as I cannot see the landlord allowing that. Thanks for your help.

Cancel the contract within 14 days and it wont cost you anything. Call at 08.00 for the best chance of getting through quickly - options 1,1,4,4
