iplayer, 4OD, download stuff from UK Nova etc..

You can also download a programe called Zattoo which lets you watch quite a few freeview channels.

There are also always those TV USB sticks which come with portable aerials but the reception can be a bit patchy in my experience.

ETA...wot he said above
Stick a usb tv adapter on it but you probably won't get a signla.
For all the other stuff, how is she going to get internet?

You could download loads of iplayer at home then take it in to watch.
Surely you'll need a broadband connection and I know that no hospital I've worked in allows wi-fi access.
bbc i player, itv catch up and 4OD let you watch last 30 days TV for free
Also unless she plans to run it off the battery the entire time she is there, it's unlikely they'll let you plug it into the hospital mains without it having an electrical safety check. Might be cheaper/easier to get a small handheld/portable tv which does take standard batteries.
