Hi,


   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.

sbiddle:

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.
