Question re SNES UK PAL

I'm interested in a SNES game that is UK PAL...will this run, assuming I've done the hardware mod, on a US SNES system with our TV sets? I want to say U.S. TVs are NTSC or something like that. Thanks to anyone who knows. Peace.

AFAIK it will run, but it will be outputing a pal signal and you'll need a pal tv to view an image.

no, north america and most asian countries use ntsc.
most pal tvs will accept a ntsc signal but most ntsc tvs won't accept a pal signal. buying a pal->ntsc converter is likely your best bet.
