Best way to attach to wall

I have a Sky Q box and a large screen TV which I want to fix to the wall. Obviously I need a TV wall bracket for the screen but how and where can I put the box with all the cables and the need for it to also  plugged in obviously??

 

I don't think I can afford to upgrade and switch to Sky Glass, ive tried to ask Sky about the costs and comparrisons but not able to help until after I commit to purchase and they won't let me have any other alternative like Sky Stream services. As a long term subscriber of almost 23 years once again I find myself considering cancelling my subscription alltogether due to price rises yet again but I can't even get far with requesting looking into saving money with a downgrade due to the haggling and retention department not wanting to give too much of a reduction.

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance with the TV!

Sky don't recommend such a setup, particularly for a main Q box, and so won't provide any information on it.  You'll find general advice on cabling and power in any AV forum, and there are third-party companies selling purpose-made brackets for main and Mini boxes online (try eBay).  Remember that a main Q box needs the twin satellite feed cable from the dish as well as mains power and the HDMI cable to the television set.

TV bracket is reasonably simple, just ask any TV store and lots come with cable holders, but q box from what I gather have to be horizontal rather than vertical strangely, I'm looking myself and can't find one, so I'm going to adapt a wall shelf support..

@Rob+Hoare I mounted my SkyQ box vertically using a similar bracket as shown by @TimmyBGood above and have had no issues for the last 14 months, as long as there is a gap on the underside of the box to allow airflow from the fan.
