That is/was the intention, though the take-up has not been as successful as was first hoped. It was going to allow for the switching off of the analogue transmitters in the UK by 2015, but this is now under question. Part of the problem is that the reception is not always as great as was first promised, and you need a proper aerial to get it to work. Some of the features are great and worth having (if you can accept the shortcomings) - scrolling display of the current programme/song, access to many more stations, and with certain sets you can pause and rewind (Tivo-like).
