you need alien skin xenofex plugin, it creates a tv like effect, with lines and other things.

Commented:
if you need just the lines, you can easily make it by line selection tool, fill with a dark color, repeat the process till you fill the area, make the layer transparent.
Or you can create a texture two pixels in height, with one pixel black and one white, fill an area in a layer on top of the picture using the texture, and change layer mode / transparency.

Commented:
my advise is don't use it excesively, it's an old effect, somewhat cliched, doesn't look good when used on large areas or many places.

I just wanted to give a step by step... for beginners it's hard to know what is what.  I find a full explanantion much more helpful.

and no you don't HAVE to duplicate the layer, it's just super easy to, and most beginners know how.
I like to drag the layer and duplicate it with one hand and merge down (ctrl+e) with the other.

Of course applying a custom fill to the whole area is THE fastest way
