Sorry I can't seem to be able to edit but upon further research I found this weird contraption...
Can anyone explain (Also answer the questions in the first post most importantly) what this is? I assumed TV tuner cards were cards, what is this?
Okay. So My friend swears up and down that even if I pay 150$ on a TV tuner card, and an antenna (Not sure the price of those) that I won't be able to watch TV or satellite without some sort of subscription to the cable or satallite companies. This makes sense to me, but that can't be right, can it?
Can I really just buy a tuner, an antenna, and get TV? If so, what kind of TV can I get or what is my TV limited to?
What should I look for when I buy a TV tuner, same goes with antenna. I would prefer the cheapest possible.
Will I be getting the same programs as cable or satellite? Or am I only getting free channels? I don't really even understand what free channels are or how many there may be.
Thank you for your answers.
