I'm happy that companies are starting to release more of these USB TV tuners for those of us who use laptop computers. The V-Gear MobiTV Global is a cool USB TV tuner with a nice remote control.
From OhGizmo!: Fitting in the palm of your hand, at 25grams and only 83×27x14mm, you can watch TV anywhere you want with the V-Gear MobiTV Global. Unlike many other TV options for your computer, such as a tuner card or even a USB dongle for laptops, this USB key sized device not only tunes in television but it can tune-in pretty much anywhere in the world, with its TV/VHF/UHF/CATV NTSC/PAL capabilities. The MobiTV is also set up to for video recording in MPEG2 so you won’t miss your favorite shows even away.
