my local cable company?

TVRX is pretty much exactly what you're asking for.  It's possible
that some CATV providers are putting things above 870MHz but I haven't
seen that myself.

It's a standard TV module with an F-connector (on the RF side). I
imagine a piece of RG-6 would suffice for most commercial cable
systems.
