T.V card?
« on: August 29, 2011, 10:16:16 AM »
Hey Shane again!

I have a laptop, Asus G73JW, specs dont matter for T.V Card though i presume.

I have a laptop because i travel alot and some places i go to dont have a T.V.

I would like a USB T.V card just plug in and play but the price on them var so much im not 100% sure on what to get, i would like something under 20 pounds from what i have seen but what im really loking for is just your recommendation.

T.V cards that I am thinking of are the ones that allow you to hook a cable to it and watch TV on  your computer, even record the shows. But you have to have a cable hooked to it. The TV signal needs to come into it. If a place doesn't have a TV I doubt they will have cable tv that you can plug in.

However what I do is use the internet instead. I stream my movies and shows from netflix or hulu. So as long as you have the internet you should be able to get what ever show you want streaming right to you. No need to by a TV card :wink:

Ah one with a antenna  :wink:

Never got one of those myself. So I say try to find user reviews on any one you decide to get, and go based off of other reviews for it.
