How do I hook up a digital antenna when I have a fire stick? I have one coax cable coming in. Do I need a splitter? If so, what kind?

Are you trying to feed 1 TV or multiple TVs? If just 1, then directly connect the antenna to the TV and don't mess with the coax that is feeding your internet. Multiple might be tough. You would have to connect to the outside where the coax is fed into the house. Put the modem on a direct connection from the incoming coax (use a barrel connector) and feed the antenna into whatever splitter is already there.

Yes, the fire stick is hdmi, but my wifi was interrupted when I hooked up the antenna to the coax cable. I'm not very tech-knowledgeable, so bear with me.

Yes, my internet is fed by the coax cable. I hooked that cable up to the digital antenna, which worked, but obviously I lost internet. I'm assuming I need to split that coax cable and run one for internet and one for antenna. My question is, is this the correct way to do this?
