Need help finding a TV Tuner

I'm hoping someone can help me find a TV Tuner for a 37” LCD that doesn’t have one built in. The TV doesn’t get very much use. So, I’m not looking for something top of the line. My goal is to get rid of the cost of having an extra Comcast receiver. Thanks!

What kind of tv tuner? OTA, Satellite, Cable etc?

You say Comcast, so I am guessing you are referring to cable. Can you plug your cable directly into the tv and allow it to tune whatever channels it finds?

Yes, I was referring to cable. The TV doesn't have a cable connection.

I'm pretty sure its a Olevia 337H 37-Inch LCD HD Ready Monitor

Search for a QAM tuner stand alone. They don't sell a lot of them lately, but in the past even Sony used to make them. There a few in Amazon from off brands.

I guess I am still confused. Are you hoping to tune in Comcast programming with a stand alone box? I am not sure that is possible.

You can get OTA hd programming with a converter box
