tv tuner card help

hey guys i am looking for a tv tuner for my fathers pc but the house tv arial is not accessable at the location the pc is in, so i was wondering what the best way to get a signal would be or are tv tuners supplied with arials which would do the job.
i have noticed that some show an arial supplied & others don't so i'm not sure if an arial comes as standard

Unless you have a VERY strong signal the aerials supplied are useless.

What I did was buy a proper aerial and put it in the loft above the bedroom/office that I use and poked the lead through a hole in the ceiling. Works very well and I get nearly all the digital channels.

I don't know why but reception appears better if I use the TV card through Media Center rather than the cards own screen.
