Default Hd TV through a computer monitor

Hi, I am gonig to have 2 computer monitors soon, hopefully. I am trying to get my parents to sign up for dish network and want to know if its worth getting the HD service to play through my computer monitor? Is it even possible? Monitors are like 19" HD tvs correct?

Its ok, I just wish my parents would get good TV. All my friends talk about some TV show, and then they ask, did you see it? An I say, "nope, all have is channel 32 and sometimes 24." And thats almost true, we only get about 20 channels, have are kinda fuzzy.
