Manufacturer's Description

The LG 42LA740V Smart 3D 42" LED TV delivers flawless-looking, multi-faceted home entertainment including full internet connectivity and an innovative magic remote control.

Have you experienced Smart TV yet?
Smart TV is the way to go with modern home entertainment – simply put, you get more, on a bigger screen, right in your own home. Never miss one of your favourite shows again with access to BBC programming from the last seven days with BBC iPlayer.

Access the internet directly without needing a computer, connecting with friends on social networks such as Twitter and Facebook, watching classic YouTube videos and streaming a plethora of blockbuster films straight from the web onto your LG 42-LA740-V 42" 3D TV.

The full web browser enables you to visit all your favourite websites very much as you would on a PC, saving your favourites for speedy future use. Accessing LG Smart TV is so simple thanks to the built in WiFi or just plug an Ethernet cable from your Broadband router into the back of the TV to enable access, then follow the onscreen instructions to sit back and enjoy the benefits of LG Smart TV.

Smart sharing and apps
The 42LA-740V Full HD LED TV features the LG Smart Share function, giving you big-screen access to the music, videos and photos stored on your DLNA-certified PC, laptop and smart phone.

Share with friends and family in the comfort of your entertainment area without the hassle of wires. What’s more, you can utilise this interactive media transfer either via DLNA or one of the TV’s three USB 2.0 ports.

A range of great applications and interactive games await you in the LG App Store, designed for both individual and family entertainment. Instantly access the store onscreen and download from a brilliant app selection without a hitch.

You’ll have so much fun customising your Home Dashboard with your choice of apps for direct access whenever you please.

3D viewing at home
With LG Cinema 3D you’ll enjoy an ultra-wide viewing angle, so the 3D goodness immerses you from almost any sitting position – get more family and friends in on the action, whether it’s the big game or movie night.

The TV comes with four pairs of passive 3D glasses just like the ones from the cinema, so you don’t need to bother with batteries or recharging – they’re also easy and cheap to replace, and their lightweight build gives you an effortlessly pleasurable viewing experience.

The LG 4-2LA74-0V Full HD 42" 3D TV surpasses conventional 3D TV by being certified flicker-free, making for 3D images up to two times brighter than normal 3D televisions. Enjoy improved viewing comfort and clarity as the set converts your favourite 2D TV programmes into incredible 3D using personalised 3D effect and depth control!

The LG App Store also gives you access to 3D videos on demand in the 3D Zone, so that you can make the most of your TV.

HD behind the 3D
All this premium-grade viewing wouldn’t be possible without a Full HD 1920 × 1080p edge-lit LED display.

With over two million pixels, it delivers breathtakingly lifelike images for all content, a rapid 800 Hz picture response time reducing blur on fast-moving scenes for unbeatably clear pictures.

LG’s Triple XD Engine ensures that picture clarity, colour and contrast levels are optimised for all different kinds of content and connected devices for an unparalleled viewing experience every time you sit down.

Cinema sound
A huge part of all entertainment or cinema experiences is clear, powerful and detailed sound – and the LG 4-2LA740V offers some of the best TV sound around. Powered by Virtual Surround Plus Technology, the three two-way speakers pump out astonishing audio that will add a spine-tingling extra dimension to your viewing enjoyment.

Solid, punchy low-end lets you feel impacts, explosions and the defined throb of live music, while sculpted midrange and marvellously crisp and clear high frequencies crown movie soundtracks and sound effects, boosting the atmosphere of all your favourite content and reproducing speech in the highest clarity.

It’s like a kind of fourth dimension for your home entertainment system!

Free to view HD content
The LG 42LA74-0V Full HD 42" 3D LED TV houses a Freeview HD tuner that enables you to enjoy an incredible range of entertainment right out of the box.

Freeview is an exciting collection of shows and channels that will keep you glued to your screen and talking about long afterwards. Up to 50 digital TV channels and 24 radio stations are yours free of a subscription fee, and many channels are now available in incredible high definition with Freeview HD

Just like magic
The easiest way to control and navigate your LG 3D Smart TV is using the included Magic Motion Remote. Point, click and control using simple movements and gestures; dragging, flicking and selecting your preferences without using fiddly buttons and confusing arrow keys.

There’s also a sleek table top stand included to robustly support your TV, completing the attractive look of its slick, thin bezel for a home-enhancing appearance.
