How to add cable service to a second TV without paying for another box

How much do you pay for cable TV service? $60? $80? Over $100? There’s nothing wrong with subscribing to pay TV despite how popular cord cutting is right now. But if you’re going to pay an arm and a leg for live TV, you should at least cut down on your unnecessary related expenses. First, buy your own cable modem and return your old one to your cable company. That alone will save you $100-$120 per year. Then, if there’s a TV in your house that you only use occasionally, return your leased cable box and buy a Nyrius 5.8GHz 4 Channel Wireless Video Transmitter & Receiver. It’ll beam your cable up to 225 feet from one TV to another, and the remote extender lets you change channels just like you normally would. Just note that you can’t watch different things on the source TV and remote TV at the same time, which is why it’s only good for two TVs that are never being used simultaneously.

Here are some key details from the product page:

  • Easily stream your satellite/cable, DVDs, gaming console and more to any TV wirelessly using RCA connections.
  • Transmit standard definition audio and video seamlessly from one room to another without the hassle of installing messy cables
  • Powerful long range 5.8 GHz signal transmits video and audio up to 225 ft (maximum transmission is under clear line of sight). Transmit through walls, ceilings, and floors (range/signal quality will decrease based on environment).
  • Change channels, pause your movie – control your device from another room with the remote extender
  • 4 selectable channels to avoid interference with other wireless devices
