RG6 splitting and wiring for cable TV

I want 4 cable TV connections.I have connected all 4 sockets to a single wire.Total Coaxial Cable length is 70 feet long which is passing inside the walls of my house (It is indoor cable length of my house).I don't know about the outside length of the Cable from where the cable TV provider give me connection from distributor.Problem is that 1st coaxial wall socket shows clear picture as usual but 2nd one is weaker picture than 1st one.Similarly it happens with 3rd and 4th.Am I doing wrong?Which amplifier can works in this scenario?
Second thing is that i have no dish TV or antenna connection, I have cable TV provider who provide me TV Channels. Thanks In Advance.

How are you connecting the cables?
You probably need a one-in, 4-out splitter with an amplifier.

+1. I have three tv's on one in-coming cable connection, and the pq is flawless on all three (an LCD, an LED, and an OLED).

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.

Connecting in series with taps as described is appropriate for old school ethernet on coax but not for TV.

For TV you need to wire “home run” from each socket to a splitter.

If that Amazon splitter doesn't do the trick I'd return it for another (other than use I don't know how to test them) and if a replacement won't fix it you've got some other problem.
Sidebar: there must be a technology to measure the quality of an incoming TV signal but I've never seen anything like that.

Thread title edited to be more specific.

Second, when you say "weaker picture," what does that mean?

If this is digital HDTV, you either get a picture or you don't. Clarity isn't affected beyond pixellation from a weak signal.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
