This is a question to all who are interested in the media without having a TV. Is it possible to watch TV in our laptops? and if yes what software would be needed?

The software would be rather inconsequential. You'd need a TV tuner, which are available in internal (PCI) and external (USB) versions. Try Hauppauge.

Can it be an external tuner. Where can it be bought.

I found a few external ones on amazon that are roughly ~$75
You might be able to buy them at radio shack or a local computer store.

It can indeed be an external tuner, like I mentioned.

It can be bought from a computer shop. Try http://www.ebuyer.com or http://www.microdirect.com or whatever your preferred computer shop is!

I remember seeing on "Attack of the Show" (quotes right?) on G4 (no TechTV anymore :( )TV, that you can BitTorrent download a bunch of television shows now. They called it TVtorrents. Its slightly different from just plain download the show.
