By SD, do you mean analog (NTSC)?

We have digital standard definition on DVB. It's roughly DVD quality, so
it's better than analog TV. (Especially the analog TV that the local
cable company (Foxtel) sells, which is horrible.) 

Then we have HD also, though not all programs are shown in HD.
I'm using digital SD channels only with Myth.
