Optimised for Full HD, the Panasonic TX40ES500B is the perfect match for Blu-ray and FHD TV.

Full HD for optimal Blu-ray playback

With Full HD 1080p resolution, this Panasonic makes an ideal match for Blu-ray and FHD gaming consoles. Full HD gives more detail and a more natural picture than standard HD. The Panasonic TX-40ES500B also uses a top quality LED screen with Adaptive Backlight Dimming for superior contrast and realism.

Updated 600 Hz BMR for a smoother response
Updated from a 400 Hz to 600 Hz BMR (Backlight Motion rate) panel, this 40 inch Panasonic TV offers even smoother motion than ever. This means that when watching action movies or sport, the TX40ES500B has the speed and clarity to keep up with the action without motion blur.

Now with Freeview Play for easy access to catch-up TV
This Panasonic also features Freeview Play. This combines catch-up TV, on-demand services and live television to make it easy to watch what you want, when you want. It's free from subscription and compatible with existing broadband services, while BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, All 4 and Demand 5 are available without having to open specific apps, giving effortless scroll-back TV (requires broadband Internet connection with a minimum speed of 2Mbps).

Smart connectivity
When it comes to connecting up, this 40" Panasonic TV has got everything you'd expect from a modern smart TV. Smart connectivity brings together a host of features that make this much more than 'just' a TV, letting you stream video, photos and music from another source, such as your PC, via DLNA.

Built-in apps plus Wi-Fi
Use the app-based browser to view shopping based functions, social media apps and catch-up TV channels. There's also a web browser, letting you surf the web on the big screen via either Ethernet or built-in Wi-Fi.

Now with twin USBs and USB record
The Panasonic ES500B range now comes with twin USB sockets. Matching the twin HDMI sockets, these are handy for plugging in media devices, such as a memory stick for music playback. USB recording is also now standard, meaning you can connect a suitable HDD (Hard Disk Drive) device and record live TV.

Swipe and Share and My Home Screen
The TX40ES500B comes with Swipe and Share, which via the Panasonic app on your smartphone, enables you to stream pictures, videos and music to the TV, wirelessly. My Home Screen lets different users personalise the home screen, for a tailored style.

For a 40" smart TV from a leading brand, switch on to the Panasonic TX40ES500B.
