Wrong cable sent in quick start pack

Joining in

I have been sent a push cable for broadband but the back of the hub is a screw fit. My old cable can attach to it and give me broadband but TV will not work as I can't plug in both the hub and TV box at the same time, as there is only one cable coming from the wall socket which is a screw connection. If i attach it to the split cable i can only plug the tv box in, as the hub has a screw fit and the broadband is a plug!! If there is some kind of adapter I can buy instead of waiting for VM to send something out that would be ideal. Seems silly they would send a cable that can't fit the router?? Am I missing something here?

The new cables are all push fit.  It should push over the screw connection on the Hubs and the Wall Sockets.  Just line it up and give it a shove.  They are designed to be a "tight" fit.
