Also to get the newer channels in you will find the resolution not 720 x 576 but lower, a prime example is E4 which uses a non dvd format.
I think mpeg4 (BBC please use it) will be the saviour esp in HD resolution if we ever get it, but this leaves people with junk set top boxes
but luckly pc uses should be fine if it comes to that if the software is updated.
As your've already stated that the low bandwidth some channels are broadcasted some as low as 1mb but mpeg4 recording at this rate would be acceptable on a standard tv.
But generally most people will still get a better picture with dvb-t than analogue on the main 5 channels which seem to use more bandwidth (accept itv who seem to be **** at encoding). Also the price difference between a hardware analogue card and a dvb-t card is nothing.
But it all comes down to the fact the analogue signal will be turned off, so there is no point getting an analogue card for over the air broadcasts at worse case get a combo analogue digital card like the compro dvb-t300 or Hauppauge HVR-1100 or 1300 etc.

And yes this is analogue cable television and not a old rf tv antenna from the 1960s. So here DVB-T (curently 29 channels) that all are good and it is almost dvd like quality.

You can download the latest WinFast DTV from the following link :
The WinFast DTV's EPG works in Australia, France and Taiwan.
It should works in UK.
