Re: Extend cable to tv to other further location

Hello pangyks,

Thanks for your post. 

If you still need to extend the cabling for your TV, this this will need to be completed by

one of our engineers. 

Would you like me to have a look at this for you?

Regards

Cost of the tech visit is £99, which covers the triple screened cable, connectors & signal level adjustments that will be required to maintain services at optimum.

I already have wire as it needed to go under flooring, and also that is what your colleague advised when I called, they ask me to buy coaxial cable. Are you able to connect up the wire I have, I just need end connectors both ends.

Re: Extend cable to tv to other further location

So why did they advise me to buy one.

Also how can they make it go under floor?

Would wire be done outside?

Re: Extend cable to tv to other further location

the offshore call center will tell you anything to get your off hte phone.

They can't put it under the floor unless you have it lifted when they came and put it back down after they leave.

They will normally run it around the outside of the house (not over the roof) and then though the wall into the room needed.

Re: Extend cable to tv to other further location

That's rubbish, I have a wire showing on outside of my house. Also they should not give advice. Anyone from virgin here? 

Can't they use the wire I have, they just have to add the connectors on both ends?
