Does power cable affect coaxial?

To keep electrical interference from your coaxial cabling, keep coaxial cables and coaxial cable splitters at least six inches from electrical cables. Electrical cables include television, appliance and computer power cables as well as any electrical wires in wall cavities.

How do you run coaxial cable outside?

Install the coaxial cable, starting from the outside and working your way indoors. Reach the site of the satellite dish or over-the-air TV antenna with a ladder.

Is it safe to run ethernet cables parallel to electrical wires?

Anecdotal evidence from some (well meaning) individuals say running Ethernet cables or coaxial cable in parallel to electrical at closer distances causes no harm. In their case it likely did not or it went unnoticed at first, because the electrical wire was not being pushed to its amperage limit.
