David as the linked thread indicated, the issue is how the MATV system in your building has been configured, a splitter wont help.

Normally I dont recommend indoor antennas but you may find it a workable option in an apartment, you may have two transmitter options, depending on what side of the building you are on, Sky Tower which is vertical and a low power transmitter, so only good if you are within a few blocks of it. And Waitarua which is the tall mast on the Waitakari ranges to the west, this is horizontal. Ross's link above has the frequencies for each.

The Dick Smith L4017 ($39) would do the trick, you will need to orientate the antenna for vertical or horizontal depending on which transmitter you are aiming at, it is shown horizontal in the DSE website picture. Also I recommend you remove of fully fold up the rabbit ears, these are for VHF reception and best removed if possible.
