If you want free tv over the air on your computer check out eyetv's hybrid.
I got it and I LOVE IT!   Good-Bye DISH!  DTV, Never Again! 
This little thing works on my laptop too!  I get free tv anywhere!
The list of channels available over the air (using the old rooftop antenna) keeps growing. got about 50 channels now.  It will search for me, record for me, I can save the programs to a USB travel drive and take them to a friend's house.
I Love being free of cable and satellite boxes!  this tiny device has the jacks for S video, coaxial cable and RCA jacks.  I can watch my old VCR thru it, copy it too. I especially like being able to take snipits from the tv shows and email them :)  Honestly, I can't say enough about this device. I've been using it 2+ yrs on an old mac mini.

* Ever watch something and then wish you'd recorded it?
i discovered if I don't limit the data kept in RAM I can copy a show that's already started and not lose any of it.  The old mac has only 4GB Ram. the laptop has 8 GB.  I do recommend 8 GB RAM.  "compacting" to erase commercials and exporting the file goes much smoother with more ram.
