Is there an app to watch over the air digital TV signals on a droid?
No phone in the US has that capability. they dont have tuners built in.
However, you can get a USB tv tuner, or a slingbox, and stream your own tv signal to your phone over the internet.
Bingo. Apps can't replace hardware.
In uk u might be able to stream TVCatchup - Never Miss A Show Again
Or try Watch TV Online, Free Online TV Shows & Catch-up TV - SeeSaw
It is in the works my friend...

But I still prefer a Slingbox, despite people whinging about price of the App. Having a Slingbox can trump any Hulu/Netflix/Streaming application you can find. Controlling your cable/sat STB or DVR and your command anywhere on your phone is worth it. I love being able to sit in a WiFi cafe in Spain and be able to watch a college basketball game without issue.
