Set top box wireless or not, HDMI necessary ?




i have a new service setup for Fios tv one and was told it can be wired or wireless. Moving into a new apt it seems like the coax plug is on the opposite wall of the tv, and the previous renter maybe only streamed. While i was told the box doesn’t have to be in the same location as the box and can wirelessly connect to the TV, what about the hdmi ? 
i am coming from cable where you need to plug the hdmi from the box to the tv in order to view hd. Has anyone found differences running the coax directly vs the box wireless for tv quality or viewing? I was also told if i have a smart tv i might not need to use the hdmi cable. I am not sure if it’s possible to have another coax plug added to the wall where the tv is, but am trying to decide if i should still do self install. Any info / experience is much appreciated
