Smart TV is the definition of contemporary home entertainment – you get more, on a larger screen, in the comfort of your own lounge. Never miss one of your favourite shows, accessing BBC programmes from the last seven days with BBC iPlayer.

Hope online directly without a computer, interacting with friends on social networks like Twitter and Facebook, laughing at classic YouTube videos and streaming an abundance of blockbuster films direct from the web onto your LG 42-LA690-V 42" 3D TV.

The full web browser lets you visit all your favourite websites as you would on a PC – and you can save your favourites for rapid future use.

Accessing LG Smart TV is so easy – just run an Ethernet cable from your broadband router into the back of the TV, or connect the LG Wi-Fi USB accessory to permit wireless access, following the onscreen instructions to then sit back and enjoy the rewards of LG Smart TV.

Enjoy sharing and app facilities, the Smart way
The 42LA-690V Full HD LED TV offers the LG Smart Share function, providing you with big-screen access to music, videos and photos stored on your DLNA-certified PC, laptop and smart phone.

Share content in the comfort of your entertainment area without the annoyance of cabling, and use this interactive media transfer services either via DLNA or one of the TV’s three USB 2.0 ports.

A variety of great applications and interactive games await in the LG App Store, created for both individual and family amusement. Access the store immediately onscreen to download from a great choice of apps without a problem.

You’ll have bags of fun customising your Home Dashboard with your selection of apps that can be direct accessed whenever you like.

3D viewing in your own home
LG Cinema 3D brings you a super-wide viewing angle, so you’ll be immersed in 3D at almost any sitting position. With four pairs of passive 3D glasses included, you can get more family and friends involved, whether it’s for a sports match or epic movie.

The glasses are exactly like cinema ones, so you needn’t worry about batteries or recharging – they’re easy and cheap to replace, and since they’re lightweight, they give you an effortlessly enjoyable viewing experience.

The LG 4-2LA69-0V Full HD 42" 3D TV exceeds regular 3D TV with a flicker-free certification, providing 3D images up to two times brighter than normal 3D televisions. Bask in enhanced viewing comfort and clarity as the set converts your favourite 2D TV programmes into unbelievable 3D using custom 3D effects and depth control!

Access 3D videos on demand in the 3D Zone at the LG App Store, truly making the most of your TV.

A HD screen is the key
Such first-class viewing wouldn’t be possible without a Full HD 1920 × 1080p edge-lit LED display.

It delivers dazzlingly lifelike images for all content via its two million pixels, a 400 Hz picture response time minimising blur on fast-moving scenes for outstandingly clear pictures.

LG’s Triple XD Engine ensures that picture clarity, colour and contrast levels are optimised for different kinds of content and connected devices for a consistently unmatched viewing experience.

Cinema sound
Half of any entertainment or cinema experience is driven by amazing sound – and the LG 4-2LA690V has it in spades. Driven by Virtual Surround Plus Technology, the three two-way speakers generate astounding audio that will add another dimension to your entertainment and enjoyment.

Fat and punchy low-end lets you feel impacts, explosions and the power of live concerts, while defined midrange and scintillatingly crisp and clear high frequencies fill out movie soundtracks, enhancing atmosphere and rendering speech in the utmost clarity.

It’s almost like a fourth dimension for your home entertainment setup!

Freeview HD makes everything better
The LG 42L-A690V Full HD 42" 3D LED TV has an integrated Freeview HD tuner that brings you an incredible range of entertainment – start watching straight out of the box.

Freeview is an exciting collection of shows and channels that will keep you glued to your screen to talk about long afterwards.

Up to 50 digital TV channels and 24 radio stations are yours to love, free of a subscription fee – and the many channels now available in high definition with Freeview HD really let you see what your television can do.

Marvellous magic remote control
The simplest and most enjoyable way to control and navigate your LG 3D Smart TV is by using the Magic Motion Remote included.

Use simple movements and gestures to point, click and control items on screen – you can drag, flick and select your preferences without using confusing buttons and annoying arrow keys.

The included shiny table top stand sturdily supports your TV, finishing off the eye-catching appearance of its polished, thin bezel for a look that will enhance any room in your home.
