Well NZ tvs are multicolour. Having said that, unless you plan to get games from US (NTSC-US) you can't get PAL games and play on them.

Usually it is... if you are uncertain as to if your chip allows it, Google the chip Smile

Yeah, you would need a converter if you shop for your TV in the inoganic collection or in the retro and collectables section on trademe, if you buy one new then it will be multisystem, if you get a used one it will probably me multisystem.

The issue is the power supply. I dont know if they are universal or just 110 when you get them over there.

If you are bringing lots of things over, pack extension cables and powerstrips since you cant get them here, and if its coming by sea, get a few stepdown transformers in the states since they are crazy expensive here.

IF you're getting a new TV in NZ, then you probably don't have to bother with that NTSC-PAL converter as NZ TVs are multi-colour supported, so it can automatically switch between NTSC and PAL signal.

Question more so, should be, will you be playing US Wii games, after you're here or will you be attempting to get PAL games.
