The latest HDB flats do not have roof-top antennae. Old low rise blocks may not have roof-top antennae - the tv signals come from nearby high blocks. A sudden gust of wind may have caused the antennae to collapse.

If the above do not answer your question, by all means call them. They are supposed to serve you.
I believe they removed and direct all signals to SCV. But strangely other nearby flats still have the antenna. Anyway called them they'll come down to check. But the technician didn't really state clearly about things like charges and stuff. They won't charge me anything right?

Absolutely free, unlike commercial enterprises

Edit: are you able to receive TV2? If so you are still connected to HDB matv.

Nope. Absolutely nothing. Not even a single clear channel.

using LG T2 TV~ sadly the external HDD has to be formatted to their system, making un-readable for windows & mac user. even on linux, the files are encrypted~
so LG can record? how about philips and other brands? possible?

Free as expected...Was there any antennae at the roof top in the first place? Or they disappeared either because they were blown off by the wind or dropped off because of some rusty components? And no T2 signal? Just curious.

Forgot to tell you that if wall socket needs to be replaced because of fair wear and tear, then it's free of charge. But if it is damaged somehow by users, then you may have to pay, depending on how they exercise the discretion. Anyway even if you have to pay, it will be at term contract rate which means it's cheap.
