Wireless TV?

So I'm in the midst of moving to a new house and the Cable outlet is on the other side of the living room. Instead of having an ugly cable wire go along the floor up to the TV, I was wondering if there is anything currently that can wireless stream TV reception onto my TV? And can it handle streaming HD TV as well?

HD = shitty without wires. requires too much clean bandwidth. have someone install a jack.

The area I want to put the TV in is against an inner wall of the house. I don't see how they'd be able to put a new jack there without ripping up the wall, going down through the foundations, etc. I thought jacks could only be put against outer walls?

Try streaming Hulu, Netflix, etc wireless first to see if you can live without cable TV.

It's a 3 level home. He'd have to route from the main floor up through the third floor to get to the roof.

Its called a "wall fish", most cable companies will do them for an added fee.
