Beware! Some programs to watch tv on your computer, open doors exploited by malware, so if you use one, is always checking your connection, anything can be a suspected infection.

I have a Dell Ultra-sharp 2407WFP which has both Analog- S-video and Component inputs. I simply run the component cable from my cable box to the monitor and watch TV either in full-screen 1080i or in a variable sized window in the monitor itself. I'm free to browse- play games or whatever and watch it either in the window (or with the touch of a button) full screen. No TV card is needed and its just like having an HD TV.

I use a Win TV HVR-950 Tuner with the Windows 7 Media Center that allows me to view scores of QAM channels many of which are broadcast in HD on Comcast Cable and they look absolutely terrific! I am able to switch back and forth between the computer's ATI video card and the same channels going directly to my 32" Bravia and the video card makes the picture look so much better because of the adjustments that can be made in the video card that I seldom if ever watch programming through the TV tuner any more.

Another great source of programming is Hulu Desktop. I used to watch shows on Hulu through my browser, but I have found that it is a much better viewing experience viewing Hulu when the programming is downloaded directly to the desktop.
