Yes you can, you will need a PCI Digital TV card, Hauppauge do one, I believe called the Nexus T.

Not sure if there is much more in the way of childrens channels coming up, but there is sure to be an increased channel line up in the future.

You will also need an aerial link to your computer to plug into the nexus, plus it will need connecting to your computer's sound card or external sound source. There is also a small tv tuner box that connects to computers via a USB port so avoiding the need to open up the computer.
