Internal Wall Mounted TV

Hi - I am due to be moving home next month. The house I am moving to currently has the TV mounted on an internal wall. The current owners use sky, would one of the Virgin engineers be able to run your cables to the same internal wall, without creating a whole world of mess? 

Thanks

Re: Internal Wall Mounted TV

cables are run along skirting etc, to the location where the the virgin box will be.

however, virgin cables don't connect to the TV, they connect to the virgin box, which i assume would not be mounted to a wall.

Re: Internal Wall Mounted TV

Thanks for the quick reply.

So we'd be better off switching to Sky if we didn't want visible cables, as the cables are in the walls already.

Thanks.

Re: Internal Wall Mounted TV

if you want virgin cables to run behind the walls then you would need to put in place your own pull strings for the cable to be pulled thru, virgin won't do that for you.

Re: Internal Wall Mounted TV

If the Sky cables are installed inside conduit tubes they could be the pull ropes for other cables ?

Re: Internal Wall Mounted TV

only if you're removing them though, if you want to keep them in place then you couldn't do that.

You could if you used the Sky cable to pull through 2/3/4 pull strings which could then be used to pull any number of cables through - and more pull ropes if needed.   Sorry... i'll get me coat 😉

Re: Internal Wall Mounted TV

think at the point it would probably just be easier to smash a hole in the wall 🙂

Re: Internal Wall Mounted TV

I don't think that a previous owner's mounting of a TV should necessarily be of overriding importance in deciding which Pay TV provider is best for you.
