From images of Hong Kong's old airport showing airplanes landing in tight circumstances (http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/11/travel/hong-kong-kai-tak-airport/index.html?hpt=hp_c4). Click on image for a larger view:

From one of the comments following the story:

"My last trip to Kai Tak was about 6 months before it ceased operations. I remember looking out the window into the night and seeing people in their flats watching TV at about the same level as my window. I could actually see whether they were watching sports or a movie. It was very surreal, but cool to experience that."

Those are UHF Yagi antennas, of various brands. Most people have OTA, plus satellite. There are several different transmitter sites in Hong Kong, as they try to work around the terrain.
