Sending an antenna signal to two televisions requires an electronic device known as a coaxial cable splitter, which is available at electronics and hardware stores. A single coaxial cable carries the signal from the antenna to the splitter, which divides the signal onto cables connected at the other end to two television sets. The cables are equipped with rotating metal couplers for quick, secure connections.
