Do TV aerial cables carry electricity?
Then, is it safe to cut through a TV aerial cable?
Usually a TV antenna cable (called coaxial cable or just coax) carries only low voltages that are not dangerous to humans. For this reason it's a good idea to use insulated wire cutters when cutting a coax cable that is connected in any way to equipment.
Subsequently, question is, can a coaxial cable act as an antenna? Yes, you can connect your TV antenna to your cable TV wiring system. If your home is wired for cable TV and you want to cut the cord and drop cable in favor of a TV antenna the same coax cable can be used for the TV antenna. It's likely a lot easier than you think.
Beside this, what is the difference between air and cable on a TV?
The obvious difference between cable and OTA TV is channel-density. Cable TV is comprised of a few thousand channels, while OTA TV only broadcasts (at max) 69 channels for each locality.
Can coaxial cable shock?
There is no way you should ever get a shock by touching the shield (outer conductor) on a pice of coax. That's the whole point of the grounding provisions of the NEC: to see to it no one gets shocked.
