Nearly all Aussie and Kiwi stuff is NTSC/PAL 50hz/60hz capable and has been for years. Also, even the big name brands here are generally region free, or VERY easily unlocked. I would have thought the UK/EU would be the same?

also havent needed an ntsc convertor to play ntsc dvds - just a compatible tv which is pretty much every near modern one - is the same true in reverse to negate the need for a pal convertor?
most new tvs in other countries will be only NTSC or pal

my new flat screen Sony Aquos Tvs here in Japan needed a converter,

funny thing 10 years ago Tvs in Japan didnt need it. they were able to play both, but with the strong ties to the US they adopted the same format with US tvs so now they cant and you need a converter sadly
most tvs now are 50 / 60hz compatible though arent they? certainly for quite a few years now as ive watched ntsc videos and dvds and only had problems on old tvs...

oh chop beat me to it! as I said region free players arent expensive and can be bought from shops but they dont advertise the fact they are or can be made to be region free...
