Panasonic’s Viera Remote App allows you to control your TV from a smartphone or tablet along with stream videos and send photos wirelessly to the big screen.

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.

LED
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.

An A+ power rating means it won’t cost a fortune to run either, making for impressive yet efficient entertainment.

Perfect for sport and film
Whether you’re gathered round watching sports with friends, watching the latest Blu-ray blockbuster with a loved one or simply relaxing with the soaps, you can expect smooth, fluid pictures courtesy of 100 Hz Black-Light-Blinking technology.

Designed to reduce motion-blur during high-speed and intense scenes, you can enjoy the immersion of HD TV without distraction.

Convenient connectivity
Connecting your Blu-ray player, DVD player, console and anything else you have is simple with HDMI, SCART, component and composite connectivity.

Plus, a USB port lets enjoy video, music and photos from memory sticks and external hard drives in full HD.
