A cable TV's signal must be decrypted inside a cable box before it can be viewed on a television set. You can use wireless routing video transmitters to route the same signal from the cable box to 10 independent televisions by using wireless receivers. A splitter box will be needed to augment the TV signal, but otherwise no special tools are necessary. The transmitter and receiver routing devices and the splitter box can be purchased at computer or electronic stores and do not require any expertise in electronics to be used.
