Both Singapore and the UK use PAL, so the TVs themselves will work. But you'll need to get new cable boxes, and remember that satellite dishes are outlawed :roll:

Control, of course. All about control and only giving you what you need.

doesn't pay to bring TV from UK, they are so cheap here! and there is the risk of damage on the way, not worth the hassle
