    Default What kind of cable do I need to connect a antenna to a HDTV?

    Just curious as to what kind of cabling I'm going to need to connect a antenna to my HDTV? It'll be the first time I've gone without cable.

    You will need Coaxial cable with "F" connectors on the end. You will find it at Wal-Mart, radio shack, etc. Get RG-6, not the cheaper and thinner RG-59.

    As Pogi has said, the RG6 is the right stuff. But, are you saying that you previously have had Cable at your present location ? IF that is the case, you probably already have Coaxial Cable installed there which will work quite well for Antenna reception.
