How do I watch TV on this computer?
 
We finally decided to get me a desktop computer. :rolleyes: But it has so much more than the laptop we were going to get me! :p This one you can watch tv! But I don't understand... how do I get tv on my new computer when I get it. Im going to have internet DSL so it would automatically have tv on it once the internet is hooked up? Here's the link about you can watch tv on it:

Pretty sure you need a video card with a tv tuner.

So do I need to buy a video card with a tv tuner or does it come with one?

Probably have to buy it, though I think some monitors come with it now days. Or you can get a USB tv tuner...

You done have to buy a video card with a tv input...you have to buy a TV TUNER...its hooked up into ur pci slot...then you just connect your cable wire into the back of your computer and you can watch TV..as simple as that....only costs about 30-40

I think there's some misunderstanding tho, it sounds like Carriefan01 thinks that the computer he selected has the ability to watch tv, unlike other computers. All computers can if you put a tv tuner in it. I just say this so that he doesn't pick that computer as if it's special because it can watch tv, if he puts a tv tuner in it. I've never had any luck with tv tuners tho.
