    With the new OTA broadcast standard transmission of ATSC 3 coming soon, does it make sense to purchase a TV with a built in OTA ATSC 1 tuner that will soon become obsolete? Rather, purchase a computer monitor that has NO built in tuner, but has HDMI connectivity, allowing external hardware (TV tuners, DVD players, etc.) anything with HDMI out to be connected to this computer monitor. ATSC 3 is NOT backwards compatible, which means that any currently manufactured hardware utilizing OTA ATSC 1 tuners, will have nothing to receive.

    The main difference between a monitor and a TV is pixel sizes and brightness. You won't be able to use PC with a TV. On the other side, aftermarket TV tuners won't have good image quality compared to a TV.

    I suggest you should get a monitor for your PC and a TV for your well, TV

    I respectfully disagree. Have you seen the specs on the latest tv's? Since I work for a large electronics company, I have 1080HD tv's (one in 4k) all throughout my house, and I have a combination of Windows, Mac and Apply TV's connected to them with zero issues with display. AND some of today's tv's are cheaper than computer displays.
