For my case, my antenna is being sticked behind my TV, so it doesn't affect much of any aesthetic unsightly issues and is still able to receive DTV signal well.
Same as me, some more using those old rabbit ears antenna (found a few lying around) instead of buying "branded" one.

Am I right to say that if I don't subscribe to paid TV, I will have to endure that unsightly antenna in order to receive digital TV? If the TV is not located close to a window, even worse need to extend the antenna a long distance.

Anyone found a better way to hide the antenna?
DTV suppose to allow you to receive signals even without placing them unsightly. Get those tiny active antennas those that fits in with your furniture should be fine. Place them behind or beside the tv if your area is already digital ready.

Mine cannot. If I don't place the antenna near the window the picture keeps freezing. Maybe my estate reception no good.

Tampines still not in the "green" zone yet, ie. not indoor reception ready, that's reason. As to why Tampines Courts Megastore able to receive, they probably use booster antenna or their own building antenna to pick signal from nearby town. I remember when my area was not "green" but yet able to receive certain channels from HDB MATV point.

At Courts Mega Store Tampines, it's their own building mah. Of course u can expect that they will erect their own antennas at the roof top lor. This will be independent of the indoor-ready status map.

Yup outdoor reception is islandwide already so any antenna that's not located within a building may receive DTV anywhere.

Can those using HDB MATV point kindly confirm this. What's the average strength & quality of the DVB-T2 signal? My is around 20% whilst using indoor antenna (rabbit-ear type) can hit 80-90%.

Constant 99% on all Mediacorp channels. Catch is that I cannot receive any signals for Malaysia/Indonesia DVB-T2, as they are all filtered out, as previously confirmed by the HDB MATV contractor.
