Wireless TV signal to another room?

by dont know much / July 12, 2009 2:21 PM PDT

Hi,
Is it possible to somehow 'beam' a cable signal from a TV in one room to a TV in another room. I'd like to have Cable TV in our kitchen but there's no cable outlet and we don't really want to run the cable line along the back of the house and then drill through the siding etc into the kitchen. We do have Cable in the next room (living room) however there's no way to split it from the living room into the kitchen without wires on the walls/across floors - which I do not want. Sorry if I seem a little 'technoligically inexperienced' but I figure in this day and age there must be someway around this. Any info would be appreciated!

but it will cost about $500, it also will depend on the tv, since you say kitchen I am guessing that it is a small tv?? Slingcatcher do not have coaxal ports (that I know)

Look up 'slingbox' and 'sling catcher' on C/net, you need one of each for the set up.
It would be cheaper to have the cable comp. too come out and install a line into the kitchen, you would have to call them, but it should run around $100.
