Can I use this card to get TV and can I show this TV on an external monitor?

I'm a bit confused by what you want to do.

You mention "TV out" in the topic. If you want to view your computer on an external TV that doesn't have VGA or HDMI unputs the answer is no.

The card does pick up TV so you can view TV on your computer monitor.

As above these are capture cards so it will allow you to watch TV. It does not feed a signal to your TV and I dont think any TV cards do. However you have serveral options for feeding a TV your PC screen. The basic ones are listed above. VGA, HDMI/DVI (same thing different plug). Depending on your video card you may also have the option of S-Video. Component or composite via a cable that plugs into your video card.
