Coax cable hasn't changed either. What had changed is the signal strength. You might need an signal amplifier.
Oh but the cables have changed. It may not be much but the shielding has improved. Less chance of a ghost image. Ghost imaging occurs when the antenna picks up the over the air waves and the same wave gets in through another route. This other route could be a older cable (less shielding) or an open connector (the unused jack that you don't have a tv hooked up to). There is a cap for the unused jacks.
