DVB-T/T2 is free-to-air HD TV

DVB-T/T2 is free over-the-air digital HDTV standard for Most of Asia Pacific and Europe and typically requires an antenna for reception. There is no monthly fee for DVB-T/T2 free-to-air HD TV.

DVB-C is digital cable TV

DVB-C allows users to watch unencrypted HDTV stations from cable TV without a set-top box. DVB-C doesn't require any cable TV subscription. DVB-C digital HD TV is not available on all cable networks, so check with your local cable TV operator for DVB-C availability.

If you need analog TV, any one of the WinTV-HVR products (such as the WinTV-HVR-935HD) include analog TV. The HVR stands for 'hybrid video recorder' and all WinTV-HVR's have both analog and digital TV reception.
