External cat6 up the outside of the house, drill in and surface or flush box in the room. Black external Cat6 is not ugly and darn site easier if decor is good indoors.
You can patch or switch from that point.

So from Sky Router from Ethernet point (has 2 Ethernet points) to new Ethernet switch? Then just to each room with CAT6

I’m also looking for some cameras could I take a link from Ethernet switch to DVR then from there to cameras?

spare port of router>patch lead into a network switch (however many points you are planning of have in the points is the number of way network switch you need maybe get a few spare)

then cat6 from network switch to the various points in the house
(either punched into a cat6 outlet plate if chasing into the wall) or terminate the cat6 end off in a rj45 and plug straight into the TV, xbox etc

if your planning on have quite a few points- then having a network work cabinet with a patch panel would be a neater more professional finish

Also if I was to go NVR and POE cameras How would I get this on TV would that need CAT6 from NVR to TV? As TV will have CAT 6 but from Network Switch

Hdmi from nvr to tv or if quite a long distance from tv to nvr you could do it with hdmi over cat6

Sky Router needs to be set to modem mode then a cable from the Sky Box to your switch, I would install a patch panel where all the points are terminated to from the rooms then patch them in to the switch, you can either install a POE switch if you want cameras or a POE NVR to run the cameras.

Thanks I forgot about modem, so what’s the best way to do it as I want points in each room and cameras and the cameras from an NVR? So where would my points in each room go? Would I need a switch for them and then a POE NVR for cameras? So a switch that links to POE NVR?

Depends what make of CCTV you go for, Hikvision sell POE NVR's which I have, I also have a couple of 8 port Ubiquiti Tough Switches which also provide POE, as I am on Virgin I switched it to Modem Mode and then connected a Netgear R6400 to it so that handles the Wireless and DHCP side of things as well as firewalls etc etc and is then connected to the Tough Switches.
