I was wondering if MoCA might be the one step solution for both.
They are just saying that it provides enough bandwidth to move video around a household. Their biggest customers prior to the netgear launch were TV service providers who wanted to provide 'whole home DVR' type service. MoCA is the mechanism these 'whole home' DVR cable boxes use.
So yes, for your case you would need something like Slingbox to use this.
[EDIT] I found a table showing that RG-59 has a 21.5db loss over 100ft, while RG-6 has a 6.1db loss (at 1GHz). According to my calculations, this means that 280 feet of RG-59 is equivalent to 985 feet (300M) of RG-6. Doesn't directly answer your question, but should help...
