TV aerial cable are too big!

Hello!

I am hoping someone can help me! I have just moved in to this flat but my aerial cable that come out the wall (there are 2) are too big to fit in the back of my TV or BT tv box.

I am not sure if anyone can suggest an adapter that might help? 

thank you!

Are you sure its actually a terrestrial TV aerial and not a satellite or cable system feed?

Can you take a picture?

@Cfran it does sound like the cables are for a satellite dish especially if there are two cables.

You need to find out whether there is a TV wall socket located somewhere. Its unlikely to have a loose cable like the satellite feed.

You just need a standard TV aerial cable.

Like this...

You can get these from places like Wilkos...

For a 2 meter length cable...

Wilko 2m Coax Cable

Or Amazon... 

Micro-Plated-Aerial-Adapter-Black

For a 1 meter length cable...

How far from the silver socket in your photo is your BT box?

You need to know that to get the right length cable.
