Desperate for HDTV? Too cheap to shell out for a new TV and a box so that you can have it? There may just be an answer for you, and it could come via your laptop with the new Artec T14A USB TV Tuner.
You just plug the small device into your USB port, attach the antenna which comes with it, and you’re in business. The tuner can receive over-the-air HDTV stations broadcast on the ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) protocol. That means that content is available in places like Canada, the U.S., South Korea, Taiwan and Argentina.
The tuner comes with drivers for Windows XP Media Center Edition. You’ll also need an analog TV tuner installed on your machine. With that, though, you can join the HDTV party without shelling out major bucks. In fact, the whole thing only costs you $89, which seems almost too good to be true. It’s available now.
