The following list has been compiled to show the television systems in use in different countries.

Great care has been taken in compiling this document, but for a small number of countries the information available was contradictory and it has not been possible to ascertain exactly which system is in use. Where this is the case you will see the symbol to indicate that the information for that country may not be accurate

Where two different systems are shown it may be because new stations have started up that are broadcasting in a different system, or it may be because some Secam countries are changing to PAL and both systems are still in use.

If you have a tape that needs changing to or from a different system, please contact us to arrange for it to be converted. Click on the links to see our Prices and Terms and Conditions.

If you find any errors or omissions, please let me know so that I can correct them.
