Well that's a very vague statement you've made. Do you mean the quality of the signal, the quality of the programming or something else?

Only thing I miss from DVB-S is SBS (must get my DVB-S satellite box back) but that was for the range of programs.

Picture and sound quality on the other hand DVB-T would be the clear winner. (Excuse the bad pun).

No way is satellite better than Digital Terrestrial.
You must be comparing to Analogue Terrestrial (Apples and Oranges?).
