How to Run Cable for Direct TV


DirectTV is a popular satellite television provider based in San Diego. The company provides television services for customers in the United States, Caribbean and some parts of Central America. The service has been available since mid-1994. The company carries local and broadcast television networks, as well as other subscription channels and radio services. In recent years, it has become more popular for home owners to install their own Direct TV installation and run cable for the satellite antenna support to and from the antenna.

  • Choose a shielded RG6 coaxial cable for installing between the DirectTV dish and your primary television tuner.

  • Connect a ground block outside of the home to a part of the house that is grounded in between the TV dish and the inside of the home.

  • Twist a #10 copper wire around the grounding terminal screw of the grounding block and connect it to the house ground point. The wire should be clamped at both connections.Then, run the coaxial cable from the dish output terminals to the external antenna. Then, run coaxial cable from the cable box to the approximate location of the computer.

  • Reset your DirectTV box and view any DirectTV channel to op-test your cable installation.
