I'm looking at buying a switch game and import it from America. Would it work here in the UK? And would it work docked to my TV also?

@Anti-Matter Thanks for your reply. Now just to figure out if I'll get charge Vat or Import Tax if ordering through Amazon.

@Samwich90
There's online import tax and vat calculators, so you can have a guesstimate on the cost of potential charges.
Amazon should flag it if you are going to pay up front. I've paid upfront with eBay, but I can't remember if I have with Amazon or not.

Shouldn't be a issue AFAIK.

You pay the vat upfront, i just ordered Crash Bandicoot 4 from Amazon USA,it took 5 days to get to the uk and paid £46 total.

I've imported some games and it worked perfect. T.V.s around the world use the same video output standard in this day and age, no more NTSC/PAL/SECAM just 720p 1080p, that's nice.
If you import a game witch are in your local Eshop it will even update and is compatible with DLC, worked like a charm with Final Fantasy IX and Chocobo's Dungeon Everybudy!

@CactusMan DLC compatibility varies from game to game. Sometimes DLC across regions works fine but sometimes it'll only work if you buy DLC from the same region.

Some DLC requires your account in that region to download. Example you buy a JPN DLC or a JPN DLC download comes with the code. Then your account has to be set to JPN settings to download to the DLC. So there are limits when it comes to DLC.
