Now available with a 48 inch screen, the Panasonic TX-48JZ1500B represents compact TV excellence.

48 inch OLED – compact quality
Using individual Organic Light-Emitting Diodes, OLED screens don’t require a backlight like conventional LED TVs do. This means you get more consistent and accurate colour, right across the screen. It also delivers blacks so deep that the contrast is near limitless. For the truest colour possible, OLED is the brightest and best. Now available as a Panasonic 48 inch TV, OLED is easier to accommodate than ever.

Tuned to perfection – with the help of Hollywood
Helping to maximise the OLED panel’s full potential, the image is tuned by a leading Hollywood colourist. The colourist, Stefan Sonnenfeld, is the talent behind blockbusters such as Wonder Women 1984, and brings the delight of the cinema to the small screen. With the Panasonic TX48JZ1500B you get to see the picture, just as the director intended.

Powerful new processor – HCX Pro Al
Panasonic’s powerful new HCX Pro Al processor identifies the type of content you’re watching – such as movie, sports, music or news – and automatically optimises the picture and sound settings to suit. This gives you the very best in sound and vision, without having to make any user adjustments.

Dolby Atmos and Cinema Surround Pro for enveloping sound
Compatible with Dolby Atmos sound, this Panasonic TV creates a more immersive, enveloping sound. Fitted with a 30 watt amp, the 48HZ1500B produces room-filling sound. For even more immersion, select the Cinema Surround Pro setting, or use the HDMI eARC or optical digital output to add a soundbar or base.

HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ – ultimate detail in all lighting conditions
HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ take HDR10 and Dolby Vision to the next level, making them the ultimate HDR-type picture processors. HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ use light sensors inside the TV to adjust the picture quality for the best contrast. This improves the picture’s brightness, without ‘washing out’ the depth. You get a consistent picture quality, however light or dark your room is.

Multi-format HDR support for a stunning picture from all sources
As well as HDR10+ Adaptive and Dolby Vision IQ, this Panasonic 48 inch OLED TV also offers multi-format HDR, including HDR10+, HDR10, HLG and HLG Photo. HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology. Each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments.

See the picture exactly as originally intended, with Filmmaker Mode
Featuring exclusive technology from Panasonic, Filmmaker Mode makes the best of any movie. Designed in collaboration with filmmakers and Hollywood studios, Filmmaker Mode lets you experience the cinematic vision, exactly as the director intended. Overriding the TV’s own motion and picture processing, Filmmaker Mode presents the correct aspect ratio, colour and frame rate – just as the filmmakers intended. Panasonic exclusively add Intelligent Sensing to Filmmaker mode, so that the picture reacts intelligently to changes in light, automatically giving you the most cinematic picture possible, whether the room is bright or dark.

Get the best out of Netflix, with Netflix Calibrated Mode
If you’re a movie fan and use Netflix, you’ll love Netflix Calibrated Mode. This setting bypasses many of the TVs processors, giving you a picture that’s much closer to how the filmmaker originally intended.

Delivers for gamers with Game Mode Extreme
Now with HDMI 2.1 ports and Game Mode Extreme, the TX48JZ1500B packs a range of enhancements for optimised gaming. 4K/120Hz compatibility, HFR (High Frame Rate) and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) combine to improve resolution, lower input lag and maximise detail. With a very low latency performance, you’ll be quicker to see enemies lurking in the shadows and faster to react when you need to fight.

Smart TV made easy with HomeScreen 6.0
The latest version of Panasonic’s HomeScreen makes all the smart functions even easier to access. When selecting content from your favourite streaming apps, the system offers thumbnail images, making it easier to find your favourite programme. Support for Google Assistant and Alexa means you can also find content via voice command. The new My Scenery feature offers a selection of background images and videos.

Search, stream and play
When it comes to Smart TV flexibility, the TX48JZ1500B has all the features you need. As well as the popular streaming apps, the TV also offers a full web browser. DLNA certified streaming makes it easy to transfer music and video files from your home computer, laptop or NAS drive to the TV. Also standard is Swipe and Share functionality. Swipe and share lets you use the Panasonic Remote TV app for smartphone media sharing. By using the app on your smartphone or tablet, you can easily stream pictures, 4K videos and music straight to the TV - no cables required.

Listen with two pairs of headphones, with Dual Bluetooth Connection
New for 2021, Dual Bluetooth Connection lets two of you listen, simultaneously, with wireless Bluetooth headphones. Perfect for immersive listening when the kids have gone to bed, Dual Bluetooth Connection helps keep the action intense, without disturbing others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant picture and great sound My previous Panasonic was a 42 3D plasma. The 48 inch OLED is the same outside dimensions and power consumption is 25% of the Plasma. This is important as we are now retired and the TV is on for most of the day. The picture is superb and much easier to use as the main streaming apps are incorporated into the TV. Setup couldn't have been easier. Switch the TV on and the built in setup takes you step by step through first time use setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture quality! Panasonic have once again delivered an outstanding OLED screen that remains class leading, and includes technology second to none. The 4K picture is stunning and produces a great 3D look when set to True Cinema mode. The usual dissapointment, and common with most TV types, is the sound quality - absolute rubbish! However, and having said this, l didn't buy it for the sound as l already have this sorted, so well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good size screen, brilliant picture and sound. I received this TV a few days ago. It was a replacement for a 37" Panasonic Plasma TV that was 12 years old, so moving from a good quality TV.. As soon as we had set up the TV my wife and I were both blown away by the quality of the picture. We played a 4k video from Youtube and were amazed at the very fine details you could see. The colours were all very natural, and the clarity amazing. We have still to play around with the settings, but we are so pleased with the sound that we will probably not now purchase a soundbar that we were thinking of. There are so many settings for picture , sound and connections that everyone should be able to set up the TV to suit them. My son in law helped me set up the TV. He has a very large 65" Samsung QLED TV and was amazed at the sound of the Panasonic. He said it felt like you were there with the sound coming from all around you. We have also watched a film on Disney Plus, which automatically recognised Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision - very impressed. We were not sure which make of TV to choose when we visited the Richer Sounds store in Bristol, but with the very patient help of Stephen choose this Panasonic, and do not regret our decision. We would recommend this TV to anyone. The only disappointment was that it was quite expensive, probably because it appears to be in short supply. However it is worth every penny. We were so please we visited the Richer Sounds store rather than just paying online. The advice and opportunity to look at different TV's was invaluable, and with the Richer Sounds price guarantee you cannot lose out. We will certainly shop again at Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I decided to update my 12 year old Panasonic Plasma TV and have been astounded by what I have missed out on. The depth of colours, the clarity of the picture plus all the extras, Internet, Netflix etc so much quicker than accessing them via the Virgin media and Sky systems. I have always used Panasonic in the past and due to Covid issues, this was bought without viewing the set first. A simple conversation with the retailer and I reserved the item from his next delivery. I was not disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An exceptional TV in every way The Panasonic PANA-TX-48JZ1500B is an exceptional TV. This quality is very evident when viewing 4K content such as the Grand Tour with Dolby Vision and HDR10+ pulling out all the stops. That true inky black and those superb peak whites show real genuine dominance over conventional TVs. At first the true black takes a little getting used to, but once you adjust your expectations to realising that the black element of the picture you are viewing is now a genuine black and not some version of a darkish grey, the picture is indeed sublime – no other word for it. As I use an external surround sound system with this TV I find the “Digital Audio (OPTICAL - TOSLINK) Out” facility gives a superb audio feed for that surround system, easily the equivalent in quality terms as the picture itself. The low end is really top notch in my opinion. The only very, very small “fly in the ointment” I could find with this TV was with the optical audio output, I had to set the digital sound output to PCM rather than auto in the extensive menu system otherwise it would not always recognise the audio stream – but once that was set, no problem. However, if you use the onboard sound system (internal speakers) then this little difficulty does not arise. So not really a quibble, just purely an observation. All in all, once you have experienced an OLED TV such as this, there is no going back to a conventional TV if you want to watch TV at its highest visual and audio quality. This is a sure game changer. Very highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Panasonic OLED TV. (48 inch) This TV is great for day to day usage. Superb picture quality & sound. Very easy to set up, & use the menu’s to personal to individual requirements. Our previous TV was a Panasonic Viera, & although it was a good few year old & was still going strong, so it was an easy choice to select an ‘up to date’ Panasonic TV in line with what we use our TV for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow .. What a great TV [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Absolutely blown away with the quality of this TV. It's sleek and well built. For a slim TV, it feels really solid and well made. Setup took seconds. It has a large amount of connectivity and even the remote is robust. I'm really happy with the picture quality, it doesn't look over processed and offers some really deep blacks and vivid colours. Couldn't be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy TV [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This OLED TV is beyond amazing! The dynamic range is great, it transitions quickly between light and dark so you don’t have to worry about the sun shining through the window. The TV is large and combined with the Dolby Atmos, if gives you a cinema like experience. I often struggle to hear TV and have turn it up loud usually, but with the sound on this one I have the volume on level 4! It really helps you hear everything well and clear. It has a lot of connection points so you can have lots of things attached to it once. The picture quality is Chrystal clear and the colors are sharp. I would recommend this to anyone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super slick, super slim [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Strong rich life like colours the picture is super sharp. Amazing built in Dolby surround sound. I like that you can choose between a variety of sound options. You can make the music or the voices stronger. Large selection of extremely easily accessible apps. Ultra ultra slim. Comes with an extremely sturdy base. I always worry about the base of the tv having young children. But this is by far the sturdiest tv base I have seen on a tv. The tv is very responsive my children are very impatient and change apps frequently. However this tv is always able to keep up. Even from start up. Only negative for my son is he can’t play retro games through a scart as there is no scart port. But that’s very common. But we have brought at adapter and solved that easily. Definitely would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This new Oled TV is absolutely out of this world, I love it so much. When the box arrived, I could not believe how big it was. This screen is massive and it definitely gives movies a "home cinema" feeling, which is amazing! This TV has a huge dynamic range, with super fast transitions from extremely dark (but detailed) to extremely bright.The dolby vision IQ and dolby atmos definitely gives the cinema experience and I love the voice control on the remote, it really makes things easier and quicker. Another brilliant feature is the Netflix calibrated mode which adapts the settings to allow you to watch movies at the highest quality possible. I am very super impressed!! Everything about this TV is super fantastic. The picture is magnificent as is the sound and product quality. All of the extra media connections and streaming services included make life so much easier. No need to buy extra add on products. Undeniably, the best we've ever had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good Great sound! My old TV I usually put the subtitles on and read along with anything I wanted to watch! The dialogue was so low in the mix. ( Don't know if that's a technical term)!. Anyway, I really sound have gotten a soundbar for my last telly but never did. With this one it won't be necessary. And the picture! Holy dogs! It's brilliant! I can now die happy! Knowing that I've seen the future....
