Nope, PlayTV will be available in UK, France, Italy, Germany and Spain early in 2008, with other PAL territories to follow in the future.

But you can always order one from Germany. :)

So this is basically just a DVB-T digibox, with PVR capabilities?

Well, if you have Digital Terrestrial television, then not long. :)
