Ask Sony, to technical for me Wiki says N America uses NTSC Europe uses PAL but whether you can use a US Sony TV in Portugal not a clue, but I believe apart from voltage then you need a European set top tuner as it's the TV tuner that is the issue not NTSC v PAL

Personally you might be disappointed.

The TV is unlikely to work in Europe.

Yes, you could potentially watch via a satellite box, but you will not pick anything up via an aerial

How to use US televisions and DVD players in the UK is relevant to the UK - but some of it will apply to Portugal.

I would consider buying a new one over here.
Hi.

I just bought a brand new 50 inches Sony TV about two months ago or something like that .. that was on sale. Very affordable!

Anyway, I am not into cable/satellite tv at all. I am not tv person as well. Maybe I can use it to watch TDT with it, perhaps ? As he said.. call Sony and found out. :)

You'll need a set top box to watch any TV of any description it's the built in tuner that won't work here or the Azores so you must have an external source, consider warranty which will also be useless to you here quite a risk when you consider that perhaps your TV might suffer in transit, in US it has a value here zero
