    Nothing is different although if your going to the US just to get the TV then it will cost hell of a lot more than the UK one.

    I'm in the UK and bought a certified refurbished Apple TV on eBay, and when it turned up it was a US one with a wall adapter. I've had no problems and ended up saving £100 on the price here. I've never had a UK one but there doesn't seem to be anything noticeably US-specific about it other than the plug.

    I hate how they over price everything in the uk, but it does mean i go to the states on holiday, i come back with allot of stuff. I would get a US one if you are going there soon.

    My mother-in-law brought me my :apple:TV back from the US earlier this year and it works great - there's no difference and it works fine with all your UK account stuff.

    The only thing you need is a uk plug figure 8 lead, but you don't need a transformer or anything like that as it's all built in. At the time I got the 160Gb for £170.
