I expect it will play perfectly for you on a pc within iTunes. 

My understanding is that all PCs play PAL format, where as US TVs don’t.

Hi y’all,

Looking for a shortcut here and maybe asking a dumb tech question, but here it goes:

I live the USA. I’m ready to pull the trigger on this iTunes purchase so I can watch the movie Midnight Oil 1984 on my laptop. The purchase window on my screen:

If this were a DVD, I’d have a problem, because it would be PAL format, and my US-formatted DVD player wouldn’t be able to play it. But here, I’m not buying a DVD, just a digital copy that I’ll watch on iTunes. Will I have such a compatibility problem with this digital purchase and download.
