Because I have to spend money just to buy the antenna to watch FTA channels.
It is just $2.

Don't get angry because of $2. Furthermore, it is not his fault.

Those digital square blocky artifacts that arises when the digital signal is poor.

PS: I tried to shift the antenna near the window. Helped a little. So I guess my antenna isn't powerful enough. Even though my signal strength is near 9/10
Can also be the H/W, like overheating, or just the silicon not working that well.
Hard to say unless you have pics of it.

But if its not bothersome, continue using

You do understand what is analogue switch-off? Starhub cable won't be carrying analogue TV by the end of 2018 also. So u want to pay a few hundreds to pull SCV cable to use for a year.

For Singapore, most case you will need antenna more then $2.

Just to check, if getting a Dvb-t2 USB or PIC card for pc, still need antenna right?

If you have any of these mentioned antenna, can give it a try, it should work.

As for the so-called $2 antenna, I believed this is the one but low pricing is usually bundle with STB. Personally I wouldn't recommend it as the built is rather crude, I brought 2 and one came with cable not properly soldered.

$2.94 from lazada, free shipping, sometimes can get from ebay at less than S$2.

This one is better at $8, higher gain, nicer shap, with a strong magnet.

I am always confused by Alibaba's strategy in SG or Southeast Asia. Should we buy things from Taobao, Tmall, AliExpress or Lazada to get the best price?

Thanks for SIC the antenna. Ate these better than funke?
What about PCI cards? Currently very expensive.
