You can for standard video, or for standard cable TV. RG-6 is thicker, and gives you slightly better signal strength over distance. This is why your cable company will replace the old RG-59 with RG-6 if you install a cable modem.

Hope this helps.

RG59 or URM-70 are both good for video or RF downleads. For video over long distances (>100m) I recommend PSF1/3 cable which is double screened and used for broadcast installations and long distance CCTV. The only downside of PSF1/3 is the bend radius is about twice that of the RG/URM cable because of the construction.
