Yes, all you will need is a relatively simple to connect TV tuner and a small antenna. For a laptop, I'd suggest using a small USB stick TV tuner like the Hauppauge 1191 WinTV-HVR-950Q TV Tuner Stick - Amazon.com : Hauppauge 1191 WinTV-HVR-950Q TV Tuner Stick/Personal Video Recorder with Clear QAM and Remote Control (Black) : Audio Video Remote Controls : Electronics

or Diamond TVW750USB ATI Theater HD 75 - Amazon.com : Diamond TVW750USB ATI Theater HD 750 USB TV Tuner : External Tv Tuners : Electronics

To the original poster, you may want to check how close TV towers are to where you will be using the TV tuner for over-the-air reception. To do that, you'll need to go to TV Fool. A small antenna will only work if you're approximately 15 miles or less from TV towers. You may need a larger antenna for any distance further than that.
