Cheapest way is to buy a cheap dish & box setup of trademe or one of the DTV sale websites (freeviewsales or whatever) borrow a meeter to align the dish and away you go.

Or wait for the terrestrial service to start up in a year or so.

IMO its good for terrestrial reception and worth the outlay if you have a dish already.

If you have a SKY dish already on the roof and your terrestial TV signal is rubbish, then its worth the effort of installing a set top box and the dish - the picture quality from the satellite is good. If you aready have a good terrestial TV signal though it's probably better staying with that.
