Installing Video Media Server 4100

I currently have Fios internet setup via the ONT using ethernet only. The ethernet cable from the ONT is connected to my eero router and the internet is working perfectly. Now I am trying to do a self installation for Fios TV+ which has a STB that connects to the TV via HDMI and uses the wi-fi. It also has the Video Media Server that seems to require a coax connection on setup. Is there a way around this? I'm also thinking that I could just use the fire sticks that all our TVs have and install the Fios TV App on all of them and forgo the STB/VMS installation. I only got these as they are part of the package. I want to know what my options are  before I go buy MoCA device. Thoughts?

I believe in order to use the Fios app, you have to be renting at least 1 VMS box. You could use the Firesticks to stream, but yo would not be able to get any Fios specific channels that way. There are people that use their own routers to get around renting one from Verizon, but you still have to rent a VMS box to get Fios programming. kind of a catch-22 by design.
