Default How to question: poolside cabana TV w/o wires?

Friend has a cabana at the far end of his pool, and wants to put a TV there. He has cable TV in his house, but there is no reasonable was to get a cable to the poolhouse, with all the concrete pool deck right up to the back of the house, and surrounding the cabana. Is there any homeowner-priced wireless system; wifi, bluetooth, or PSB transmitter/receiver pair, that can send his cable signal out to the pool?

Yes, it is possible. AT&T has a way to do this so I am sure it is possible other ways.

Yes, he'd like cable channels to the TV, but I guess if he can't have that, then setting the STB in the house, to the channel he wants to watch at the pool, could be better than nothing.

Thanks for the ideas, and if anyone else has something that looks like it could work, keep 'em coming!

Stream it to a tablet connected to the TV via HDMI.
