Antenna box for local TV
As of Summer 12, 2009, all significant TV channels turned from analog to digital transmissions. This switch scarcely impacts homes that have a TV with an integral electronic tuner. Most TVs made after July 2005 come built with a built-in digital tuner. But TVs with an integrated electronic tuner need cable or an antenna for neighborhood digital TV development. Households with analog TVs must buy an electronic digital converter box allowing an analog TV to get digitally transmitted indicators. An electronic converter box may cost from $40 to $60.

- Indoor antenna
- Digital converter box
- Coaxial cable

Link the coaxial cable from interior antenna to the "Antenna in" port on back of the electronic converter box.
Operate another coaxial cable from the "television down" slot on digital converter box toward "Antenna in" slot in the back of the television. The electronic converter package should incorporate a coaxial cable. If not, coaxial cables can be found at electronic devices stores.
Plug it and digital converter box into an electric socket. Switch on the digital converter box and TV. Switch the television to channel a few. Scan the available regional stations that broadcast a digital signal by following the on-screen set-up guide. Adjust the interior antenna to get perfect picture for watching regional television stations in your town.

what is a good, cheap/free tv program that i can watch my local television stations on my computer? | Yahoo Answers
i plugged my computer to my tv, and i don't have a controller to switch between the two. so i need a television program.
You might check out Slingbox. It might be a couple of hundred which I would guess is more than you want to pay but it will not only let you watch tv and video sources on your computer but also let you watch from anywhere you have a good internet connection. The sling connection will go back to your computer and the slingbox and you can watch your local tv or if you have a dvd player hooked up (I have a sony 400 disc machine) you can select and watch any dvd you want. You should be able to get one from Best Buy.
