You need a device which can tune the TV channels. For example: https://www.hauppauge.com/pages/prod...dcuttertv.html

Unless the channels you want to watch have streaming service (whether live or after-broadcast), then no.

Those channels must have streaming service or so... I'm also trying to connect my cable, probably, some things depend on utility or provider too. I've recently read in Clearview Energy reviews that lots of things matter, not only after-broadcast service...

What does your power provider have to do with streaming TV?
