agree  Óscar Delgado Gosálvez: Wiki: Digital terrestrial television, an implementation of digital technology to provide a greater number of channels and/or better quality of picture and sound through a conventional antenna (or aerial) instead of a satellite dish or cable connection

agree  Daniel Parra: It's merely a digitized (British digitised) version of the old TV. Means that the signal goes from a ground (terrestrial) station to your home or other reception area. The old analog TV programming will be discontinued shortly.
