Is there a good reason to have a TV tuner card?

A few years ago I was so excited to get a TV tuner card but I never got a desktop.. I imagined streaming hours and hours of cable content onto my hard drive to keep forever... but nowadays with youtube, tons of places to stream stuff, direct downloads etc.. not to mention not much on TV.. is there a good reason to have a TV tuner card?
