Android_Smartphone_DVB-T2The tuner makes it suitable for ASEAN & Middle East, Europe, Africa,  South America, Taiwan, and Japan, all countries that broadcast using DVB-T/T2, or ISDB-T. I’d assume you’d have to be relatively close to the broadcasting station for it to work, and/or that it might not work everywhere you go.
