It's obvious it's all down to politics and money. Probably Hollywood studios are behind it.

I'm in PAL-land (Australia) and I think every Bluray player and TV I've come across is 60Hz "at heart", but capable of 50Hz, or the TV's in NTSC land are 60Hz, with 50Hz disabled, however you want to look at it.

Both Bluray players here (Sony and Samsung) display their own menus at 60Hz. One only switches the TV to 50Hz when playing a 25fps disc, while the other is also clever enough to switch the TV to 50Hz when playing 25fps video via USB. I'm not sure which refresh rate the TV uses when playing video via it's internal media player. I've never tested it but most of the video I use it for is 23.976fps/24fps anyway.

My LCD computer monitor can accept either a 60Hz or 50Hz input.

NTSC support has been common for so long, that back when DVD rentals were a thing, I'd occasionally rent a DVD and not realise it was NTSC until I looked more closely at home, but even my old CRT could switch to "NTSC mode" and the DVD player didn't care.

Europe is the same, but USA is not. Their TVs (not players) don't really support 50Hz.

Sorry to take so long to reply (I've not been able to figure out doom9 and I don't get notifications).

I play via MPV running in Win10. The Sharp TV is connected via NVIDIA driven DisplayPort. The TV model is LC-42LB261U.
