Default dual system TVs in the UAE? NTSC/PAL

Hi all,

Are TVs easily available with dual NTSC/PAL systems? We have a US Nintendo Wii (NTSC) and wondering if it will work in the UAE.

Thanks!

Don't bother with a PAL / NTSC signal for games consoles. Either use component cables, or HDMI for those that support it. Most tube TVs, and all LCDs and plasmas, will support those two input methods.

Does anyone know if a UK TV will work in Dubai, as we took our to NZ and they never worked unless we got sky(so kids have sky in their rooms) don't want to move them if they will not work.

Last I saw a PAL wii was 1600 Dhs and the NTSC version slightly cheaper. Still cheaper to buy in UK though
