1.Buy a PC TV Tuner.

These are most often PCI Express devices.

PCI Express often referred to as PCI-E or PCIe, is a computer bus technology that allows expansion cards to communicate with the computer’s processor. Installing a PCI-E card is much like installing other cards, but it has its own slot and often requires an additional power connection.

 They connect inside your computer. Chances are you already have a device using a PCIE slot, look in the rear side of your computer case and try to find a modem /vga monitor/ sound ports etc using a PCIE slot. Most computers come with an empty slot also. If you are not comfortable with installing a PCIE device, simply buy a USB TV Tuner online. USB Tuners will work just as well as PCIe Tuners.

If you decide to go with the USB or PCIe TV Tuner, which you can buy online for about $80 to $250, skip this step and go to step 3. If you would rather use an USB device which is easier to hook up, you can also find these online for a bargain. Plug the PCIE or USB TV Tuner device into your computers USB or PCIE port. Insert the CD that came with your tuner, and install the drivers from the CD manually.

After hooking up and installing the hardware and software for your new TV tuner, you are ready to plug your cable into the tuner. It is the same cable that your TV is currently using. You can also plug a VCR’s cable into this tuner device to watch VHS movies on your PC, and usually a DVD player to watch DVD movies on your computer. Your tuner probably came with a program to watch TV, but if not you can download one online for free.
