Cables for fiber-optic TV
 
When I complete my add a level, I'm switching to Verizon FIOS. Do I still us regular cable TV linesto each tv, or is this the time for something better?

They will install a box on the outside of the house that has the Fiber in it (some areas are Coax to the house), which in turns your Ethernet, Telephone, and Coax for the TV will terminate at.

The above is what the Box looks like.

Thats pretty cool, but I'm wondering what I run from there to each TV?

Thanks

Coax. And you will not be able to access the box, since it takes a Verizon tech to do so. They will run lines into your house, and if you want more boxes (have to have a Digital box to access their service, since hooking up your T.V. will not work) you will have to pay. For the cost, it is compareable to Satellite & CATV.
