advise on best coax cable for Uverse?

advise on best coax cable for Uverse?

moved my TV in bedroom. was connected via a short 5' coax cable wall to TV. moved TV and now need ~35' cable. I found some 100' coax with a significantly thinner copper core than what ATT installed. I see pixalation and I assume the cable is not up for the task. Any suggestions on what to purchase?

 

thank you

thank you for the fast response. do I need to be concerned about the fancy connector ATT has on their Coax cables? it's a fairly large clear plastic sleeve that lets you tighten the connector by hand.

The connector has to be a compressed rather than crimped on (crimped on ones can cause pixelization/freezes), could call monoprice and ask if connectors are compressed or crimped on.  Think ATT just adds the ones w/plastic sleeve for ease. 


Know in past I never had a problem tightening a coax connector by hand and just give it a snug w/wrench or pliers. Smiley Wink
