watch tv on macbook

Hi, I'd like to see television on my macbook and I'm trying to find a good ( but not expensive) solution.

I've seen these two:

http://www.elgato.com/uk/eyetv/eyetv-dtt

http://www.avermedia.com/Product/Pro...6&tab=APDriver

Has anyone experience with these two devices or with others?

Thanks in advance.

I've had the Elgato Hybrid (basically it is an analogue and DTT USB tuner) for years now and take it with me when I travel so I can watch TV. It has worked in every country I've ever gone to. Very good product.

I use the DTT Deluxe - the smallest DVB-T tuner available! And best match to any MacBook, IMHO. In urban areas works very well even with the provided small telescopic antenna. (There's the bigger antenna with a cable in the box as well).
As you can see, the price also includes a full license to EyeTV 3, best TV-viewing app for OS X.

looking the reviews, it seems good, I have a question:

will hd channel work? And if yes is it a good vision(without lag, etc) ?

edit:

another question:

the difference between http://www.elgato.com/uk/eyetv/eyetv-dtt and http://www.elgato.com/uk/eyetv/eyetv-dtt-deluxe is just the little antenna or are there other differences?
