Yes, if your antenna point has dvb-t2 signal, otherwise then you need a separate antenna.
that means i try connecting to the starhub wall point first and test? if don't have signal i will need to buy the separate antenna?

Starhub ish confirmz only dvb-c and anolog cable signal. Unless your tv support dvb-c as well if not you need an indoor antenna to your dvb-t2 tv for digital channels

i got a samsung series 6 32 inch TV, 2012 model. and i believe it has all these requirements to get the digital broadcast. however the place where i rent got no antenna, got no TV point. i bought a rabbit antenna and i only got like 2 indonesian channel and very weak grainy (geylang area). any recommendation of an indoor antenna that is strong/sensitive to make the TV useful?

many thanks!
I think your Samsung TV doesn't support DVB-T2 since it's a 2012 model. You can consider getting a DVB-T2 set top box and pair it with your rabbit antenna to get T2 signals, however location still applies on whether you are getting good signals.

Same. Living in the north side and can receive SCTV and RCTI, though SCTV reception sometimes the signal is too weak. I can receive TV1, TV2, TV3, NTV7, 8TV, TV9(Malaysia) and SCTV, RCTI(Indo) through my MATV.

Mine is the opposite. SCTV signals better than RCTI and even better than the other MY channels

Weird.. My house in jurong and punggol both can only receive SG CH 5/8 and MY TV2 clearly thru MATV. The rest no signal at all.
If you cannot receive the analogue UHF channels, ie Octo, U, Vas and CNA, that means your matv were the very early generations of HDB matv which didn't support UHF bands. They should have been rewired long ago but not done.

See the following 2 threads for antennae that work:

Edit: ultimately it's your location that counts.

Strangely enough, my block signal is coming from the neighboring block. There wasn't a rooftop antenna in the first place for my block.
Sometimes even high rise blocks may not have good tv signal.

So we can't ask them to rewire rite? Cos I think it describes my issue.
