Will UK Samsung hd TV work in West Australia

Recommended Posts

don't know about WA specifically but our UK Samsung smart tv is fully functioning  in Tassie. We did a factory reset on arrival to delete uk channels and apps.

Its worth the risk, its naïve to think Japanese or Korean tv manufacturers make a special model for little old blighty

And to counter the above, our LG worked fine in terms of receiving channels in Aus but the smart bit didn't.

Factory reset but no smart apps.  Only one to work is Youtube. 

Netflix, Prime, iPlayer, E4, etc - all gone.

 

Lots on the internet of how to fix it if you want to mess about with VPNs etc

Or do as we did and use a Chromecast.

Yes I must admit we only use youtube Netflix etc.

Thing is in my experience you can only sell a tv for a fraction of the new price so why not bring it and use it for the 90% of the full functions instead of getting 50 quid for it
