I'd be grateful if someone could tell me the name of the type of wall connector used to connect the Sky box to the wall outlet - the screw type that the very stiff cable connects to.

Asking because, due to the stiffness of that cable, it sticks out/will not easily bend and our new floor-standing TV cabinet won't push back right against the wall. I want to try and get a 90-degree adapter for the wall connection (to reduce the sticking-out-ness) but don't know what to google for. I'm hoping Jaycar or someone like them might have one but I don't know if they exist.
