Coax vertically on vinyl siding

Hi All, has anyone found a raceway that could be run vertically over vinyl siding to cover up the unsightly Coax cable installed in cable and satellite cos. Similar to what HVAC cos use to cover line sets.

The only time I've seen it look decent is when it's run through the corner channel. My other thought was like yours on the minisplit line covers.

How about cable raceway https://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-.../hi/6577543011.

It is usually used indoors but if paintable could probably stand up to weather.

I would probably unzip the siding and just run it behind. Quite easy.

Run it up in the corner post. No need to unzip.

For all we know, it is nowhere near a corner post.

What about painting it something close to the siding? Granted, tedious, but I remember doing that with an antenna cable for somebody quite a long time ago and it made quite a difference as I recall.

If your house is white, they make white coax. Otherwise, a wiremold or conduit of any type on top of the siding is going to look just as bad as the coax does.

Hi, Thanks I know of these options, I was hoping for some new product that I was not aware of.

I'll keep an eye out for an invisible raceway. LOL
