If you have an aerial junction box in the loft it'll be less messy to have a new aerial socket fitted near to where your computer is and run a cable to it from the loft or even the TV aerial itself - any reputable aerial rigger can do the job if you don't fancy doing it yourself.

you could try a portable arial ,a half decent one is around 20 they usually have a signal booster inside. you may not get all the channels you could have with a attic or roof arial but its better than nothing ,also you may just have to move it about to get different channels.

Wireless extension of a TV aerial possible though not always cheap

Philips 3100 Wireless TV Extension shows a SCART solution but Co-axial connections are available

does this look like a good one to go for? SLX Gold digiTop Amplified High Performance Indoor: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics
When I look out my window, I can see the TV mast on the hill about 1-2 miles away, so hopefully the signal will be reasonable
