multiple televisons in house

Feb 20, 2016 9:00AM PST

I am building a house and have a central closet to house the cables for 9 televsions. The each have an hdmi going to them, and if over hundred feet have two cat 6 instead of the hdmi. I like
Dish, but would switch to cable if I have to. Don't mind coupling some of the tvs. How can I keep everything in that closet, boxes etc. so nothing is at the televison. many are wall hanging. thanks

Clarification Request
More info needed

You seem to be possibly implying you don't want an individual box at every TV(?)

If you could be more verbose about the type of ultimate functionality you wish to end up with, we can navigate through either a single media closet location, or if you can be more flexible, distinct locations of individual hardware based on need.

Some folks end up going with big Matrix HDMI switch, and running multiple HDTVs from one (or multiple) inputs (e.g. cable boxes, sat boxes, DVD players, etc.). These setups can vary quite a lot, and sometimes the homeowner doesn't even need separate channels for each TV- sometimes they are happy running a single channel on the first six TVs (one example), but would like the ability to show a second channel or source on either of the two remaining TVs. (etc.). Again, the more info you provide the easier it is to recommend what you really need

The installer make a recess in the wall for power and small gear so the TV could be over that gear.

Wireless across an entire house to send video feed to multiple HDTVs? That's not gonna happen easily at the consumer level.

Me thinks you either mis-read the question, or are certifiable.
