The television and video standard used in Canada is called NTSC. NTSC and PAL are incomcompatible. A NTSC TV will not work with PAL. A PAL TV will not work with NTSC.

All TVs that Samsung sells in Canada are NTSC compatible only. No Samsung television made for the Canadian market is compatible with PAL.
