Virgin 360 TV Box coaxial cable

I have had Virgin Broadband for 18 months and now possibly I want to introduce TV package.

Virgin cabling is coming into the front room of house where the hub is stationed, but my TV is in the next room(second room), would this mean needing to run the Virgin coaxial cable from front room into second room or possibly moving the hub into next room, which ideally don't really want because my PC/Playstation is set up in the front room. 

My current set up in the second room is I have Sky TV dish and a normal tv aerial coming from the back of the house, could someone help what would happen with cabling etc or can I use normal TV aerial for virgin 360 TV box.

When you order TV ask for a manned install, otherwise they will send a self-install kit which is the box, a splitter & 2 x 3 metre cables.

With a manned install the technician can split the cable outside & create a new entry point on the exterior wall of the second room if you don't want cables run internally.

VM use specialised cable, as they use the same frequency bands as Freeview, digital radio & mobile phones. Any ingress from these will disrupt the network, so standard TV coax is a definite no, as it is not "watertight" to the frequencies it needs to keep out..
