    Japan is the only countries use ISDB Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting as this moment. all TV sold in Japan for local market built in ISDB-T tuner, but only support AC 110V and Japanese language.in OSD ( on screen display ) and the manual / remove control are Japanese language .
    you don’t get any TV support / built in ISDB-T tuner in other countries, as Africa countries / Thailand are still In Assessment for ISDB-T.
    Philippines is the next countries going to use ISDB-T after 2015 , so you don’t get TV in Philippines with ISDB-T until 2013 / 2014 . Mose of other Asia countries go for DVB-T .
    Brazil, Peru, Argentina, Chile, Venezuela, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Uruguay, use only * ISDB-T International * based on the Japanese ISDB-T standard, but difference in technical specifications . all TV sold in the above countries with built in ISDB-T International tuner, but unable to get it from other countries.
    All TV sold in USA / CANADA / Korea are built in digital ACST tuner .
    All TV sold in European with built in digital DVB-T tuner. except France .
    just too bad – Japan is the only countries use ISDB as this moment .
    i believe you from Philippines ? too early to look for ISDB-T TV.
