What is antenna cable connection?
Regarding this, what cable do I need for antenna?
The three most commonly used coaxial cable types for video applications are RG59/U, RG6/U and RG11/U. RG59/U is available with either solid copper or copper-clad-steel centre conductor. It's suitable for basic analog TV antenna feeds in residential applications and for basic CCTV systems over short cable runs.
Secondly, can cable and antenna on same line? Because back in the bad old days, you most certainly could get a cable signal and your internet through the same coax line. But when it comes to running coax from an outdoor, over-the-air antenna and your cable internet into a single line into your home — well, you just can't do it.
