Default TV Tuner Card Question

My sons told me about some software that allows a TV in another city (like MInneapolis) to transmit a signal to my computer via sattelite. I control the TV tuner via my PC. Have you heard of this? If it's for real I'd like to do it, get Minneapolis channels on my PC in Baudette!!! Do you know anything about this?

Does such a thing exist? Does a general TV Tuner card pickup channels like that? Can someone elaborate please? thank you. Anyone able to recommend a good card?

well if you can get the satellite/cable signal to a tuner card then it may be possible
