Satellite TV on my PC?

I talked to someone at Dish, and they said I must have a TV to use their receiver. So PC can't decode their signals? What if I use a TV tuner? What other options do I have to use Dish Network with a computer, rather than a TV?

The simplest way would be using a TV tuner card, connecting the Dish Network receiver to it.

It might work with a DVB card, but I don't know if they can deal with encrypted signals.

is there a requirement or any tv tuner card will work? – TPR Jun 10 '12 at 6:31
I don't know; I assume any TV card will work. – Renan Jun 10 '12 at 15:04
