It is transmitted in the available frequencies of the VHF and UHF bands. DTTB has been standardized for HDTV by the International Telecommunication Union. The advantage of terrestrial transmission of digital television is that the terrestrial reception facilities with their Yagi antennas are already available and users only have to make a small investment.

The term Digital Terrestrial Television Broadcast is hardly used in Germany. Corresponding systems were installed in various countries before the turn of the millennium. In Germany, the designation DVB-T has become established.
