DirecTV multiple wall outlet wiring

DirecTV multiple wall outlet wiring

DirecTV multiple wall outlet wiring

I would like to run a single DirecTV cable from my dish and feed multiple rooms that have a wall outlet plate in each room with a TV. I do not want to use multiple receivers. I just want to be able to move my reciever from one room to another, plug in my reciever,  and watch DirecTV. What type of a splitter do I use and do I have to use a 75 ohm terminator on each unused port? I would imagine each wall plate is connected in parallel, but not sure if a splitter would be the proper thing to use.Thanks in advance for any help.
