Back in the day, when you called a cable company for new service, and they would come and run new cable to the rooms you need it, etc. however, I haven't found them to be that friendly in my last few homes.

I think we will be going with DirectTV in the new house, and if I remember right, they weren't overly eager or helpful adding new cable either.

So, I am wondering ... if after we install the DirectTV, can we hire an audio person to come in and add any additional cable, and/or add additional connectors for us?

Thanks bunches! Jules

Yes, you can have anyone that's qualified run your cable, you could even do it yourself if you had the skills and tools.

It has been a while since the last time that we lived in a town that had cable. But I seem to recall that the installer would install it into every room you asked him to.

I would think that the DirecTV guy would also run cables into as many rooms as you wanted him to.

If it were me I'd be a d*** and make them run the cable if I had multi-room service...... I wouldn't pay another company.
