There are two ways to do this.

You can fit a Digital tuner card (or external box) - either a freeview one, or a digital satellite one. You will then need a connection to a suitable aerial or a dish. There is no such thing as a digital satellite card/box that will take a Sky card - though you would still get all the free channels (BBC - ITV - Etc.)

You can use a sender (video sender) to transmit the signal from an existing digital box to your computer - which will also need a video-in faciñity (usually on a capture card) and an audio-in facility (most computers will have an audio-in) In this case you can only watch the same channel that is on you existing digital tuner - unless you have a dual-tuner model.

So for more detailed advice (if you need it), please tell us which you want.
