    It is highly unlikely, but if it did then it would only be the 5 analogue channels.

    The power supply would be an issue, the US uses a lower voltage than the UK.

    If you insist on getting one over there then you should be able to buy a TV card over here and replace it.

    Just a word on power supply, Sony does not take well to 3rd party supplies and in a bid to stamp importing often causes problems with trying to obtain supplies.

    Edit forget that I thought it was a laptop for some reason.


    As for the TV card I say buy a USB or standard PCI card, bundled stuff is usually not that good (especially sony stuff).

    As for actual viewing I will have to look to be certain but RF TV should work, digital is right out.
