Do TV amplifiers need power?

Masthead amplifiers are connected to a power supply through an uninterrupted coaxial cable. Most domestic tv masthead amps require a 12V DC, or a 5V DC power supply to work, while non-domestic settings, like a block of flats and other communal systems, may best work with an 18V or 24V DC power supply.
