Help plugging in cable!

Sorry a ridiculously basic question I’m sure... but can anyone help with how I plug in this aerial into the tv, there doesn’t seem to be a port with a screw in... thanks in advance!!!

    They are satellite cables, do you have a satellite box, for example Sky or Freesat? Or do you have a normal TV aerial, in which case that will connect to the Ant socket?

    And if you are going to plug them into a satellite receiver, make sure you straighten out the inner conductors first!

    Those cables are for connection to a satellite receiver you cannot plug them into that TV, the socket on the TV is a co-ax socket for reception from an ordinary terrestrial TV aerial.

    Twin feeds so a sky plus or possibly a sky q box
