How Easy Is It To Move A TV Aerial Socket? (Answered)

One of the most frustrating parts of moving your home around is that you are often limited by where the TV can go. The TV antenna socket is an important part of this and often limits where you can place your things. One of the common questions is how easy is it to move a TV aerial socket when moving your home around.

How easy is it to move a TV aerial socket? Moving the aerial socket can be daunting and you will need to set up the antenna from scratch. You will need to go up to the roof and create a new hole in the wall for you to push the cable through and connect it to the aerial. This can be a daunting job if you don’t have any handyman expertise.

How To Move A TV Aerial Socket?

If you are a handyman and you have a few basic tools at home, moving the TV aerial socket will be much easier and it should be far less daunting. To help you do it correctly, we have created a mini guide that will enable you to set up your TV aerial in such a way that it is easier to manage and easier for you to plug in the TV.

  1. Create A New Hole

One of the first things that you will need to do is to create a new hole in the area where you would want to set up the new TV antenna. We would recommend that you take the measurements and move the room to give you a precise idea.

Once you have it marked, you will need to drill a hole in the area where the antenna should be located and this would allow you to set up your television system. Make sure that you drill a hole large enough for the cables to go through.

  1. Move The Cable

The next thing we would suggest you do is to move the cable to the desired location. This would mean going up to the wall and finding the antenna. You will need to reroute the antenna to the desired location and this would make it much easier for you to plug it into the TV. You might need some extenders as well.

However, you can always call your local electrician to assist you in this process and to make it much easier.

  1. Plug And Play

Once everything has been moved, you can simply plug everything into the desired locations and this would make it possible to have a TV signal. If you have done everything correctly in the previous two steps, it should be far easier for you to set up everything.


Moving your TV aerial socket might seem daunting, but you would be able to easily do this and ensure that you can have your TV moved to the desired location. Let us know in the comment section if you have ever moved your TV aerial socket.
