Plug in a TV tuner

There are many networks that air their channels for free. Some of the networks are NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, PBS, etc. You can watch these channels free of cost but for that you need to purchase an antenna that is pretty small in size. The antenna we are talking about is known as plug-in TV Tuner. It comes in the form of a dongle that can be plugged into an USB port. It then catches the network channel’s signals and displays it on your computer.

The TV Plug-in Tuner that will help you catch signal at a good range is Mohu Curve 50 ($70 on Amazon) and HD Frequency Cable Cutter Metro ($24 on Amazon). Well, both the Tuner have different price due to their signal catching ranges. Mohu Curve 50 has a range of 60 mile while on the other hand HD Frequency Cable Cutter Metro has a range of 25 mile. These antenna like things can convert your computer of laptop into a television.
