You’ll be ready for future UHD TV broadcasts, and the integrated 4k decoder allows you to stream services like Netflix 4k now as well as facilities to come.
It’s also got three HDMI 2.0 connections that allow you to connect peripherals including set-top boxes and 4k Blu-ray players, making your TV ready for the future.
Introducing Freeview Play
Arriving May 2015, Freeview Play is the latest free TV service from Freeview, which you’ll be able to enjoy via the 50CX680B’s built-in Freeview HD tuner. It lets you easily scroll back through the TV guide to view shows you might have missed, enabling full catch-up TV from BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Five – with more to come.
Streaming, web browsing and more
You’ll be able to access a wide range of web applications direct from your Panasonic 50CX680 and its fast, slick Mozilla interface. It lets you quickly and easily pin favourite TV shows, apps, services and other functions straight to the customisable home screen.
There are movie streaming services from Netflix and Amazon, plus social networking with Facebook and Skype. Use pre-set decks to rapidly access whichever function you need – it’s an amazingly easy new style of TV menu.
Learns what you like
When you turn on the TV, an Info Frame appears to provide useful information and notifications like weather, smart app updates, recommendations from My Stream, most-viewed websites and even a TV guide.
My Stream is a screen filled with tailored content that’s recommended by your TV as it assesses the types of TV programmes you watch. It displays programmes in future, from catch-up and even online content so you’ve always got something interesting to look at.
Hit the smart “My” button on the remote to refine recommendations when you see something you particularly like.
A smarter, faster TV
The CX680 comes with Panasonic Cloud technology that lets you stream live TV from the tuner to a smartphone or tablet (excluding BBC channels). If you’re away from home, you can still watch a sports match or favourite show on your phone – even save remotely-viewed content to a USB stick or hard drive connected to the TV. It’s truly portable TV.
Panasonic’s Quad Core Pro technology processes Smart TV and picture separately to maintain excellent image quality at the same time as keeping streaming faster and smoother.
Talk to your TV
You’ll be able to control your Panasonic 50CX680B using the Voice Assistant feature, which allows you to speak to the TV in a natural, conversational tone thanks to a microphone in the optional touch pad remote.
Search for TV programmes, web pages or photos of a favourite celebrity by simply saying the name of what you’re looking for, and allow Voice Assistant to help you.
