Well you need a turner somewhere in the mix, and the type of tuner depends on the type of cable signal. If its unscrambled QAM then you need that type of turner, if its ATSC (like off the air broadcasts) then you need a ATSC tuner. Most new HDTV digital televisions support both of these standards.
I use this USB device this for watching Off the Air TV and Clear QAM (which is used in some cable TV systems). It still requires a computer (or laptop in my case).

Here is the Amazon link.

I'm sure you could also get a stand alone tuner as long as it interfaced to the monitor for both video and sound (likely using HDMI cable). I find HDMI to be flaky at times however.

We use a standard HD flat screen for both a TV and a computer monitor, works great for our needs when we want to use the computer, stream a movie, watch a DVD or find a local off-the-air station.

You could get one of the TVs that also will serve as a monitor and do both.
Best Buy has the insignia that we old fo that and has a DVD built in and has a 12 volt power supply as well.
You might look into that. They are not too expensive.
