Windows 7: Will this cable work to extend coaxial cable for cable box?

Will this cable work to extend coaxial cable for cable box?

Getting a new TV and placing it in a different spot than where the old TV is and I realized the coaxial cable coming from the wall isn't going to reach the new location for cable box's "Cable IN" connection. Can I use this as an extension? It looks right to me but I just want to be sure.

All you need is one of these,



And another piece of coax.

Don't use the cable in your link. Cable companies use RG-6 Cable (not RG-58).

Can I use a Y-splitter printer cable? Do they work?
I was looking at this cable and I know it doesn't work because the red connector only carries power and no data. Is there a Y-splitter printer cable that will work? I don't want to buy a print router because my workload does not require one and if a y-splitter doesn't work will this hub work?
