Default TV Tuners?

So if I got a TV Tuner for my computer, what kinds of stations would I get? And would the use of a TV Tuner be irrelevant after the switch to digital, or would it still work? I like the idea of being able to watch TV in my room since I don't have a TV. Can someone recommend me some good TV Tuners/ remotes? Thanks.

XPEX Vortex 3620 Mid Tower, Rosewill 450 Watt PSU, MSI P6N SLI Platinum 650i, Intel Celeron D 356, 2GB G.SKILL DDR2 800, Western Digital 40GB, (2) EVGA 7950GT 256MB Video Cards in SLI, HP DVD Multi-Burner, Windows XP.

If you get an analog tuner you would get whatever is analog on your ant or cable feed. If you go digital you can get what ever channel package you have on your cable or get OTA digital channels.
Be cautious when buying. Digital will get pricey.

Digital Tuners dont cost more than
$250.00 Depending on what you want a basic Digtel Wireless TV-TUNNER with Reomote would cost you $150-200 from newegg.com

but if your going to go HD..
that will go futher than $250.00
{i use HD thats how i know}
