A cost effective FHD TV that’s also optimised for HDR, the Panasonic TX40FS503 squeezes the most out of 1080p.

HDR compatibility for enhanced contrast

Although the Panasonic TX-40FS503 isn't a 4K UHD TV it is compatible with HDR signals. HDR (High Dynamic Range) preserves the detail in the brightest and darkest scenes, giving greatly enhanced realism.

Adaptive Backlit Dimming
Getting the most from HDR, Adaptive Backlit Dimming maximises the contrast ratio. This gives that extra layer of realism to images, presenting the picture closer to how the producer intended.

800 Hz BMR for a smoother response
With its 800 Hz BMR (Backlight Motion Rate) panel, this 40 inch Panasonic TV offers super-smooth motion. This means that when watching action movies or sport, the TX40FS503B has the speed and clarity to keep up with the action without motion blur.

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).

My Home Screen 3.0 for smart connectivity
Panasonic’s latest version of their smart operating system gives you access to a wide range of top quality apps. For catch-up TV fans, both Netflix and the BBC iPlayer are on board, plus a host of other apps. Smart connectivity also 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.

Twin USBs and USB record
The Panasonic FS503B range also 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 standard, meaning you can connect a suitable HDD (Hard Disk Drive) device and record live TV.

Swipe and Share
The TX40FS503B comes with Swipe and Share, which via the Panasonic Remote TV app on your smartphone, enables you to stream pictures, videos and music to the TV, wirelessly.

Sleek style
The slim panel and thin bezel are complemented by the curved, metallic stand. Its slim design also makes the TV easier to place on narrower surfaces, where the TV overhangs the edges.

For a 40" smart TV from a leading brand, switch on to the Panasonic TX40FS503B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Sound quality I like this tv because there is a lot of adjustments that can be made to picture and sound. I particularly like the speech setting in the sound menu. I find it so good that I quite often turn off my sound base to hear the dialogue more clearly and just rely on the tv speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Call the grandchild! Purchased last week to replace our ancient but trusty cathode ray TV. We are delighted with the Freesat reception and vast range of programmes and services available. Our 9 year old grand daughter set up the apps and explained the use of the handset. Sound quality is surprisingly good and has not yet lead to any domestics over the volume required for the hard of hearing partner! Our local TV man was similarly impressed by this equipment when he installed it.
