Default transitioning from xfinity to fios questions

I am planning to cancel Xfinity and switching to verizon fios for internet connection only (no phone or tv package) Will use you tube TV

I have two smart TVs…. will they receive TV channels from you tube TV wirelessly from the verizon router or do they need to be connected using the old existing coaxial xfinity cables running through my house?

Does the ONT have one coax cable connect to the router for internet WIFI ? Thanks for your help

Coax from ONT to router.
The rest works wired (cat6) or wireless as needed.
As long as the TV's have the APP's for YT and whatever... you're good to go.

Thanks for your response
so wifi would be used for internet and existing coax could not be used.
In other words cat6 would have to routed through walls to the actual TV sets?

For Internet only:
Coax from ONT to router is all that's necessary.

It's your option/choice to use wired (cat6) or wireless to the TV's.
No need to run cat6 if you decide wireless.

Coax is not needed if the TV's will be "internet only".

You could also use the old coax for off air TV signals, this would get you any local TV stations, and in HD.

Are you in a location where you can mount an outdoor TV antenna???

To find out (if your in the US or Canada) use the following web site, enter your address and estimated height of the TV antenna (start at around 20 feet) and it will tell you whats available for local HDTV at your location.

We can help you with the type of antenna needed if you post a few more times, this will allow you to paste the report link back here, it will not give away your exact location in the report.
