Yes, Unless you're in and around Ledbury/Ross/Much Marcle, I doubt the 
little antenna supplied with it will be much good. Its the same txmitter 
as the one that gives us Freeview, (Ridge Hill), so depending on how 
easy you get Freeview will be a rough indication of how likely you will 
get DVB on your PC.
