Unless you're in an amazingly strong signal area, yes an outdoor aerial is a good idea.

No probs – an external aerial needn't cost a fortune: I'd get a local CAI-member company to quote. If you look under 'members' on the CAI website, there's a postcode search facility

If you are in an area with good reception you may find your TV aerial will work just fine with DAB. Worth a try before you get aerial fitters in.
