My TV is old. I want to buy a new one while living in Japan. The only thing holding me back is that I have no idea if the TV would be absolutely worthless in the US if I ended up moving back.
Here are the things I am most worried about:
- Power (Japan: 100V, 60 Hz / US: 120V, 60 Hz) -- my TV says "100V~ 50/60Hz"
- Broadcast/Tuners (Can a Japanese TV tuner pick up US broadcasts?)
So given that the electricity is slightly different, and the tuners are potentially different, to what extent can I use a Japanese TV in the US?
