Hi all,

I am new to the forum, so sorry if this is a newbie question. I am considering switching to Bell TV while at the same time switching to Teksavvy cable for my internet (I am currently using Rogers for both). Anyone have experience if these two services play nicely together? Can an RG6 line be split between satellite AND cable internet? Thanks again.

It is always advisable to have seperate coax runs. As this sounds like a brand new Bell TV Installation, the installer should be running all new RG6 for you anyway.

Some installers will splice into existing runs of coax cable to save costs. Make sure the installer knows whether or not you will allow this. In theory, a pair of diplexers will allow cable TV/internet and satellite TV over the same coax. In practice, it's better to use separate RG6 cables, unless it is difficult or impossible to run new ones. Another option would be to place a wireless router near the cable entrance and use the existing RG6 for satellite.
