Can I Use My TV In Another Country?

Last Update date : 2014.09.08

Samsung TV Purchase Recommendation


IMPORTANT: Samsung does not recommend or support using your TV purchase in the US in another country. Furthermore, your TV is not covered under warranty when used in another country.


You can purchase a voltage converter in most retail electronics stores to convert the voltage to 110/120volts at 60hz when using in another country. Additionally, if the country you will be using the TV in does not use the NTSC signal, you need to purchase a converter box to convert that signal to NTSC. For a list of countries and the broadcasting system they use, see below:
