   Actually the reception will be no better, it is picture and sound quality that only improves, I know this because I had DVB-T in the UK, I was in a low signal area for tv reception (in the centre of a major city) and all it meant was that on a clear day I would get a good signal and when it rained it would block and if really bad, then freeze, so do not expect better reception, just better pictues and sound.

Not all stuff will be HD on DVB-T though. I would expect to see similair rates of HD programming here as to what is available FTA in Australia. In a nutshell live stuff is HD, newer locally produced stuff is HD and foreign shows are HD. There will still be a substancial % of programming that will still be SD.

Sky are in a similair situation in that apart from movies they can only broadcast programming in HD that they receive in HD or film themselves such as rugby.

Yes, what he said. I forgot to mention it does also matter what format the content was recorded in.
