There are USB TV tuners for the reception of both Analogue and Digital broadcasts but you do need a good aerial.

I think Wi-Fi (802.11b or 802.11g) would be more appropriate than bluetooth, which is more suitable for connecting mobile phones to laptops or headsets. Bluetooth is used over very short distances.

<< can bluetooth pick up a t.v signal >>

Not as such. Bluetooth is a technology to connect two devices wirelessly over a very short distance. For TV reception, you would need a Bluetooth enabled laptop to connect to a Bluetooth enabled TV tuner (which probably doesn't exist).

bluetooth now caters for 50m 100m and 200m distance.

Yes, I believe it is a bit more powerful now than the little USB device I use to connect my laptop and mobile phone :)

you can those distances in new devices the same size as your usb dongle.
