They are called digital tuners; there used to be many availble, but many have gone away as almost all new TVs are required to have built-in digital tuners. You don't need to wait until 2009, but I expect that around that time there will be a lot of low-cost tuners availble as people need to adapt their old TVs to digital broadcast.

Also, you might check e-bay for digital tuners such as RCA DTC-100 or similar units made by Samsung and Zenith. Many people who have bought new sets are selling their old tuners.
If you get a tuner now, you can watch digital TV (even if it's not HDTV) with an improved picture.
