Cable TV Connection

Cable television is a system of distributing television programs to paying subscribers via radio frequency (RF) signals transmitted through coaxial cables or light pulses through fiber-optic cables. This contrasts with traditional broadcast television, in which the television signal is transmitted over the air by radio waves and received by a television antenna attached to the television.

Know your Set-Top box

A set-top box (STB) or set-top unit (STU) is an information appliance device that generally contains a TV-tuner input and displays output connects to a television set and an external source of signal, turning the source signal into content in a form that can then be displayed on the television screen or other display device. They are used in cable television, satellite television, and over-the-air television systems, as well as other uses.

This is a device which plugs into a television and provides content. Generally speaking, it refers to devices for broadcast content rather than recordable media such as DVDs and videotapes.
The most common set-top boxes were those provided by cable and satellite companies. The main job of these boxes was to deal with the fact that these systems carry more channels than a television can assign to its own channel numbering system. The box therefore takes a signal carrying the data for multiple channels and filters out the particular channel the viewer wants to watch, usually sending the signal to an auxiliary channel on the television. The box can also decode scrambled content, either for a premium channel or for events on a pay-per-view basis.

Modern set-top cable boxes take advantage of the two-way communications available with cable to provide interactive services. At its simplest, this can allow users to order a pay-per-view event without needing to telephone the cable company. At its most complex, this can allow almost complete access to the Internet.
Set-top boxes are now used in many companies even for terrestrial or "over-the-air" broadcasts received through a TV aerial. This is because these broadcasts are available in digital format. As with cable and satellite television, the digital terrestrial system carries multiple channels in the "space" previously assigned to a single channel.
