Featuring a host of Smart TV functions, via Android TV, the Panasonic TX-40MS490B has all your TV entertainment needs covered.

Compact TV that’s smarter than most
When it comes to handling all your screen-based entertainment, the Panasonic TX-40MS490B has you covered. Android TV gives unparalleled access to all your favourite streaming services, with the most popular accessed directly via hotkeys. Google Assistant brings voice control. Built-in Chromecast lets you share content from your smartphone. All this, plus Panasonic’s legendary picture quality, makes this Panasonic 40 inch TV a number one choice.

Full HD picture with HDR support
Full HD resolution makes the TX-40MS490B the ideal choice for pairing with most TV, Blu-ray and streaming video services. Compatible with HDR10 and HLG, the HDR Brightness Enhancer reveals picture detail that would otherwise be hidden. The 700Hz RMR panel delivers a smooth-flowing picture that easily keeps up with the action.

Android TV for smart TV – including voice control via Google Assistant
Android TV gives you effortless access to a vast range of entertainment streaming apps for near unlimited entertainment. Dive into favourites such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+ and YouTube or search out a few less well known apps from the Google Play store – the choice is near endless. What’s more, this TV also features the Google Assistant, meaning you only have to ask to locate content, change channel or adjust the volume.

Share with Chromecast and Netflix
Sharing media from your smartphone or tablet is easy with Chromecast built-in. Simply pair your phone and cast what’s on your phone on to the big screen – wirelessly. You can also cast Netflix series from your smartphone to the Panasonic TX-40MS490B. Ensure both are connected to your wi-fi, then simply press the Cast icon on your phone’s screen and you’re ready to go.

Bluetooth output for enhanced audio options
The Panasonic’s Bluetooth output greatly enhances your choice of audio options. For privacy, use with your choice of Bluetooth headphones. Upgraded audio is also easy – simply pair with Bluetooth speakers or soundbar for a big uplift in sound quality.

All the connections – including USB media player
Three HDMI sockets and twin USBs make the TX-MS490B a match for many much more expensive TVs. The USB interface incorporates a media player, letting you easily playback video, music and photos stored on your USB media stick. For older PCs, there’s a VGA PC input. An optical digital output makes adding a soundbar an easy option, while the headphone socket is perfect for wired headphones.

See the difference a top brand TV makes, with the Panasonic TX-40MS490B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unravelling how to operate the Tv We received excellent service in the showroom to help our purchase followed by several helpful telephone chats as two 80 year olds sought advice on unravelling the mysteries of modern technology and connectivity on today’s televisions. We regret that some of the advances have not always made it easier!!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good TV, but remote a little slow Good tv, and really good value for money. Only downside, was founding switching functions in tv (e.g. from Netflox to TV channels) was a little slow and remote can be quite temperamental.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek looking TV with incredible picture qualit I ought this TV to replace my old Panasonic TV. The last one I had for many, many years which is testament to the quality of their products. I liked the look of the TX-40MS490B as well as having all of the features that I could want from my TV. It is a really good quality product, stylish and I am very, very happy with it. 5 Stars from me.
