That is probably 'ingress' (the OTA signal interfering with the CATV signal). Tighten all the connections and use good cable.

No. Ingress is when signals floating around in the air leak into the line. Worst offenders are substandard/loose connectors and substandard jumper cables.

So check the wall paltes & coaxial connections?
This is an apartment where the TV is located in.

Yes, inspect all of the connections in the apartment -- not just at the outlet, but at the distribution splitter as well. That includes taking a wallplate apart and checking the backside. Connectors need to be hex-crimp or, preferably, compression. No connectors that twist onto the cable. Replace any cheap jumper cables, like the ones that come with VCRs.

Not my apartment but gf's - so where can I find the distribution splitter?
It's not like my house where the outside cable comes into a distribution box in the basement & gets fed into each of the rooms.

Why not contact the landlord and/or the cableco directly and have them inspect/test/resolve the issue?
