AmazonBasics Ultra Thin Indoor TV Antenna

Mediacorp is transmitting all free-to-air channels in digital format since December 2013 under the DVB-T2 television standard.

By the end of 2017 existing analogue TV signals will stop broadcasting.

For more information, check out MediaCorp is going fully digital [1].

This means that you will not be able to receive any TV channel via the traditional SCV Coaxial Point.

If you are a StarHub TV or SingTel mio TV subscriber, there is nothing much to do.

If you are a regular user with an older television that doesn’t support DVB-T2, you need buy an UHF indoor antenna and a DVB-T2 digital set-top box and connect them to your existing TV set to watch digital TV over-the-air.

If you are a regular user with a newer television that supports DVB-T2, you just need the UHF indoor antenna.

As I just bought my Samsung Series 5 55″ SUHD Smart LED TV [2], it supports DVB-T2 and I just need to buy an UHF indoor antenna.

In Singapore, UHF indoor antennas are often out of stock and it is slightly more expensive than some models on Amazon.

I chose the AmazonBasics Ultra Thin Indoor TV Antenna (35 Mile Range) [3] from Amazon which is retailing for US$17.98 (S$25).

It also ships to Singapore for free via the AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping [4] if your qualified orders are above US$125. Not forgetting, it is also made in USA.

You will need a F Jack [5] to TV adapter in order to plug it into your television RF In port. Daiyo is selling it for S$2.70 [6] online excluding shipping while Challenger is selling it for S$3.90.
