Coax cabling inside the house

Joining in


We have virgin supplied to our house, and to the router. We have had new wiring installed and my plan was to have multi room, set up, with coax and ethernet running from a central hub, to two different TV sets. The electrician has fitted twin core coax to where we wanted the first TV set to work from. He is about to do the same to the second TV set.  He has also run ethernet cable to both TV sets. Reading the posts on here, though, I am wondering whether I need Virgin cabling throughout the house, including from the router to the TVs. Can I make this twin core coax work, since it's already installed? 

Thanks in advance

Virgin use specialised triple screened coaxial cable. They will not connect anything else. Virgin shares radio spectrum which other services (Freeview TV, DAB radio & mobile phones) that also use it outside the cable. Any ingress from these sources would cause numerous issues with the entire local network if it tracks back from your installation into the street cabinet.

The best advice is to install draw strings in the ducting so that VM installers can pull the correct coax on installation day
