Question DetailsAsked on 8/6/2014

What's a ballpark estimate to install a new cable outlet?

I moved my TV from one wall to another. I now want an additional cable outlet installed so that I don't have to have wires across the floor.

What's an estimated cost for such a task?

If you allow them to run it around the outside of the house (assuming new location is on outside wall, then minimum trip charge of $60-120 plus about $10-20 materials. Ditto if can be run through crawl space or exposed basement floor joists.

I have to run through walls or enclosed floors, then more like $150 plus the materials probably, PLUS you will have a few holes in the wall to get repaired and repainted for another couple to few hundred $.

Search the List category is TV Service - Cable

DOY solution - buy the right kind of cable (and male/female adapters as needed) in right prefabricated length (with ends already on) at Radio Shack or Amazon or such and plug into old TV location outlet/cable, run down to floor then around edge of floor (tuck under basebaord if carpeted) to new location. Cost about 25-50ยข/LF plus a buck or two apiece for M/F adapters as needed. Be sure to match cable type you have now - should say on cable (maybe printed,maybe embossed), probably RG-6-F or RG-9 coax.
