    Okay this has probably been asked before, I had a quick search but couldn't find a definative answer.

    My friend is off to the states and I was thinking of getting him to pick up an :apple:TV.

    Now I know they will work with UK voltage and over HDMI etc, but have the followign questions.

    1) Will a US :apple:TV work with a UK PAL TV over Component?
    2) Is a US :apple:TV locked down to US iTunes accounts or can I simply enter my UK account details and get it to behave exactly like a UK box?

    Any help would be great.

    They are not US-centric. You can use your UK account, like you would from your iTunes account.

    Excellent news!!!

    Looks as though a 160GB for £168 is going to be in my lounge very soon :)

    Luckily my mate is going over just after WWDC, but doubt anything will be announced for :apple:TV then.
