Found 8th Jan
Yes, another Screwfix deal, but this seems an utter bargain for anyone wanting to extend their Sky cables. Previously this stuff was quite expensive, but now its £1.59 for a 25m roll in black. Brown available for £1.39 per 25m roll.

Our sky cable is the double or shotgun type. Not this single cable.


So run it twice - sorted

Would you need to use two lengths of this to replace or extend the standard double stuff?

The shotgun type is for Sky+. But you can double up on this cable. So 25m of single or 12.5m of double. But this is handy for people who would rather buy one of those Sky magic Eye devices than pay for a multiroom subscription, then just run a cable from the living room to the bedroom to watch Sky in another room.
Thanks for the replies

Yes, so if you run a second aerial cable from the sky box to another room with the magic eye device, it's an alternative to a multiroom. (not sure if you were stating or asking lol)

No idea with Virgin, but I think their v6 remotes are Bluetooth rather than the old rf/infra red so magic eye wouldn't work. But must be a device outthere somewhere that may work.
will the cable work with virgin media?

The older Virgin boxes have no rf/aux (or whatever it's called) out so with those you can't. Never had the new box so I wouldn't know.
RG6 is a basic cable, but this still a good deal if you need a long run and on a budget.

Just read up about Magic Eye - it says that if you use one of these, the same programme has to be watched in both rooms at the same time. Does this aerial cable get around that then, if so, how does it work then? Thank you.
rg6 should let me extend my virgin feed right?
Need to change my TV position in room, have sky Q right now, would I be alright to buy two of these? Does anyone know the connectors I'd need?

No if you're using it with a Magic Eye, running this cable from main Sky box to a second TV.
Yes if you're running this cable direct from your satellite dish to a second Sky box connected to a second TV.

However, surely for anything but free channels, you'll need a second viewing card + multiroom sub anyway? Unless you're happy swapping the card over from box to box every time.

Possible that a Bluetooth remote would work from the next room across / up / down depending on all sorts of things. Worth a try.

Yep
This has a steel conductor so I wouldn’t recommend this if using for a normal TV aerial, particularly in poor signal locations.

Depending on the distance, that could work

Search for 'f type' connectors.

Have I traveled back in time? I didn't know people still did this!

The quality would be terrible by today's standards.

Hot for the deal though

connections tend to be 'F' type nowadays, and they just screw on, google it and see if it looks like it,

What would you recommend as i will be soon wanting to move my tv in living room and don't want to see cable to new location.so thinking of feeding new cable up to loft.
BT box I have so probably need to move phone cable as well.

Is it relatively easy to terminate co-ax? never done it before...

I've finished with sky but want to use the dish to feed to myhumax in another room...I was just about to get an engineer in but if it's straightforward, I'll have a go myself.
Hot! Bargain price thanks OP

Yeah, you don't really need any special tools as long as you get the screw on f-type connectors. Just need a pair of pliers and a Stanley knife. Make sure the connectors fit the cable you are using as the thickness can vary.
Can i use this to connect to the brown box outside my house to add another virgin line?
Good price but at this length better off buying WF100 even if it is a whole tenner more expensive.

Screwfix don't appear to stock WF100. I went with PF100 for £4.59 which seems a great price to me assuming it's pretty much the same thing, or am I wrong?

For some reasons it was for months in this price...

Don't worry.PF100 is very similar to WF100.
Toying with getting some WF100 myself as is a very good price for 25 metres.
Certainly better than RG6.
****** just paid a tenner for one of these and thought that was good

Essentially the same and that's a good
Other cables worth looking up are PF100, CT100 , WF100 i think they are all copper or something and maybe better when you want to do it right once (?)
