Does an external usb tv tuner have the ability to see a broadcast signal using an antenna?
If so, which one's are recommended? I'm trying to use a laptop for tv in an area with no cable. Thanks in advance.

I would imagine so...if it has a regular coaxial input (to which you would connect the antenna), of course.
