Internet TV

Hi,
I have a TV at home, however no arial near by.  What I would like to do is purchase a box that would allow me to (a) stream media from my Home Server and (b) allow me to watch Live TV

I have searched and I have not found a product that does this?  Does anyone know if this does exist?

Thanks
A

Thanks for coming back to me.  The problem is that I don't have a TV aerial at all.  We current get TV via Stat (Sky)  [I am based in the UK]

Thanks again
A.

Oh and as another alternative - depending where your Sky box is in relation to the TV, you can use a product called a 'magic eye'. This connects to your TV at one end and the other, via normal coax (aerial) cable to one of the outputs on the Sky receiver. A bit of configuration to turn it on at the Sky box and you can then watch Sky on your other TV and control it from the other location.

Of course, you're limited to the same thing on both TVs.

And the final option - Sky multiroom. They'll install you another box with the same subscription for another tenner a month. Two boxes means both rooms can independently watch different programs in whatever package you subscribe to.

And then, just come to mind, there's another option - google the sling box.

If your TV is an HDTV, then a video card with DVI or HDMI will work better than analog connections (higher resolutions).  VGA is also a good choice.
