any know any antenna for analog/digital

staying in sengkang west.
Direct connection to SCV point will already get you Mediacorp HD channels assuming your TV got DVB-C tuner. Otherwise, DIY $2.30 antenna will do.

Hi all, I got t2 tv and tried plugging to MATV @ Bedok but only can receive Test UHF CH.33 570mhz with signal strength 8% and quality 15%. Bad I will say...

Does this mean my MATV is working but bedok area not ready or is MATV's antenna is failing and need to get a indoor antenna?

Anyone from bedok can advise?

Some of us are using this.
Geniatech PT360,watch DVB-T2 TV on Android Phone/Pad


Just plugin it into a compatible phone or tablet.
Order from AliExpress

Results have been mixed, and depends on location.
Read the DVB-T2 USB Thread for more details

they must have expected this yet still push ahead
must be some hidden agenda
likely is a temporary measure to buy time for something more concrete still in the making ... but is still a waste of time and $$
Honestly speaking i don't think there's any hidden agenda it's more like what the f**k can u do ? They simply forced u to go out and buy the digital receivers and antenna if u don't than u don't get to watch the channels come 2016, it's typically how the gov in Singapore works nowadays.

I personally don't see the need for commotion anymore when StarHub is already pushing all these Mediacorp digital HD and SD channels via cable unencrypted.

You simply just need a TV with DVB-C compliant tuner.

By unencrypted u mean that u can watch hd channels on tv with dvb-c tuner without subscribing to Starhub ? If so kudos to Starhub, if not than i guess we're back to square one aren't we ?

Anybody encountered this issue?

I can get 90% strong signals for Channel 5 DH. However, when my tuner can't even detect the channel 8 signal. What is going on?
