As we inch closer to the digital TV conversion, many people assume you must buy an expensive HDTV or subscribe to cable or satellite service. Another way to watch these new signals can be done on your desktop or laptop computer.
The PCTV HD Pro Stick from Pinnacle is a device that delivers high-quality digital programming to your computer. The USB-powered TV tuner and mini-remote control are so small that they can fit in your coat pocket.
When plugged in it can receive local over-the-air analog and digital signals and can even pick up FM radio. The included software also allows for recording TV. That’s right, your own personal digital video recorder on your computer. Pause, rewind or watch your fave shows anytime.
