I am looking at getting a second box and was wondering does it stream all channels wirelessly or do I have to have a second cable installed?
All boxes require a coax connection. On demand can be streamed without a coax, but you’d lose access to live channels without it.
Correct. Some dislike the cable, but it provides more stability in terms of a reliable TV connection, compared to Sky Q that streams live TV from the main box.
All VM TV boxes need two connections..
1: Physical co-ax cable, this is what carries the live TV channels
2: Internet connection (via your VM homehub) for OnDemand, streaming & various updates. This can be either wired (Ethernet - recommended) or wireless (Ethernet)
SkyQ doesn't support 4K UHD on additional boxes, VM's V6 & 360 does.
Edit: If you don't have the co-ax connections where you want the additional box installed, then you will need a manned engineer installation.
