How do you feed a DVD player to play on several of your TV's at the same time?

Say I want to have one movie play on several of my own TV's using a DVD player, kind of like what BestBuy does...

Update:

Please provide how-to details.

    You MUST BUY a video Distribution Amplifier to drive MORE than one TV set....if you don't, and you SPLIT the signal, all the pictures will be so dark and off-color that NONE of the TVs will look good....

    So....You buy one. Then you connect the DVD's Video output to the Distribution Amp's Video IN....

    Then you connect EACH TV's Video IN to the OUTPUTs on the Distribution AMP.

    And if you need more outputs you connect ONE output on the 1st amp to the input on the 2nd amp....

    Google "Video Distribution Amp"

    As for the sound, you have a choice.....ONE Audio amp or one Audio Distribution amp laid out in the same manner as the Video Distribution amp.

    Or you might find combination units too....

    For RF antenna connection use a RF amplifier like this:

    But an AV amp or Audio Video Amplifier like this works best:
