help setting up live tv

  • im moving in with some friends and want to setup my chromebox for live tv but i dont know where to start. would i need a usb tv tuner or something like a hdhomerun? i read online that since most cable signals are encrypted in the US i’ll need a TV tuner that supports a CableCARD like a hdhomerun. is this true? they have verizon fios service and dont mind splitting a coax cable for me so i wont be using an antenna. i dont plan on recording much or if anything at all and i also dont plan on setting it up so i could watch from different locations
