drop ceiling and cable cord

I have a drop ceiling in my sewing room. The cable outlet is on the opposite side of the room from where I want to place my TV. I can't run the cord above the ceiling tile, so I wondered is there a clip system available to run the cable cord along the edge of the grid work and the wall?

You can run the cable above the drop ceiling, unless you can't get the tiles open.
You can find sign hangers(for want of a better word) that clip onto the grids, and tie wrap the cable that way.
