Freeview HD
The TX-42AS500B also features Freeview HD that’s perfect for making the most of the TV’s impressive lifelike 1080p image capabilities.

Freeview HD allows you to receive around 50 digital channels, up to 10 of which are transmitted in incredibly detailed high definition, for an impeccable viewing experience straight out of the box.

Along with offering bright, high-contrast pictures, LED TVs are often slimmer that other TV types. The Panasonic TX-42AS500B is no exception and features a discrete frame that not only looks great but reduces the overall size of the TV.
