All that’s great about Panasonic Smart TVs – just with a smaller screen – the Panasonic TX-40HX800B is the smart choice for a compact TV.

HCX Processor – Hollywood-tuned picture processor
Tuned by an industry expert in Hollywood, this 40 inch Panasonic TV delivers a picture that’s faithful to the colour and detail originally intended. The powerful HCX processor features 3D LUT, HDR and 4K remaster tech to accurately reproduce the picture – just as the filmmaker intended.

HDR Bright Panel Plus for super-sharp images
Once the signal has been processed by the powerful HCX device, it’s sent to a screen that does it justice – HDR Bright Panel Plus. Using extra-bright LED backlights, this screen goes brighter and therefore enhances contrast, giving superb levels of contrast – even in conditions of high ambient light.

Local Dimming – enhanced contrast
Working in conjunction with the HDR Bright Panel Plus, Local Dimming gives more control over the picture contrast. By being able to dim particular areas of the image, contrast is enhanced, making images look even more natural and lifelike. The processing is so fast and seamless, you’ll notice nothing except an incredible sense of image realism.

Multi-format HDR support for a stunning picture from all sources
If you’re wondering whether to choose between a TV that supports HDR10+ and one that supports Dolby Vision, you no longer have to. That’s because, this Panasonic 40” TV supports them both! HDR10+ and Dolby Vision offer 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.

Dolby Atmos for enveloping sound
Compatible with Dolby Atmos sound, this Panasonic TV creates a more immersive, enveloping sound. For even more immersion, select the Cinema Surround setting, or use the HDMI ARC or optical digital output to add a soundbar or base.

HomeScreen 5.0 for easy navigation and voice control support
The latest version of Panasonic’s HomeScreen makes all the smart functions easy to access. When selecting content from your favourite streaming apps, the system now offers thumbnail images, making it much easier to find your favourite programme. Alternatively, support for Google Assistant and Alexa means you can find content via voice command.

Search, stream and play
When it comes to Smart TV flexibility, the TX40HX800B 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.

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).

Bluetooth Audio Link
Featuring a two-way Bluetooth Audio link, the TX40HX800 makes the most of this wireless connectivity. Use the Bluetooth output to link up with your headphones or Bluetooth speaker. Alternatively, send Bluetooth sound from your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth enabled device to the TV and listen through the TV’s speakers.

Perfect as a second TV and for smaller rooms, the Panasonic TX-40HX800B delivers Panasonic perfection – just on a smaller scale.

Please note, this Smart TV features third party Apps. These Apps may be modified or withdrawn at any time. There may also be a delay in launching some of the featured Apps. Catch-up TV Apps may vary by region. The function and availability of apps is not covered by the manufacturer’s or Richer Sounds’ guarantee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality picture/sound Purchase a week ago to replace a 32" set. Pleased at how easy it was to set up and lots of applications pre.- loaded

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good TV I bought this a couple of weeks ago very happy with the tv. Staff very helpful and answered my questions very professionally.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great so far We bought this to replace a quality tv by another manufacturer (that was always frustratingly unresponsive and then the screen died after about four years) and so far we're very happy. A bright, clear quite naturalistic screen, very easy set-up and operation and at last a tv that responds quickly and intuitively to the controls! Nice, sleek, unobtrusive design and the build quality appears to be good. Would be five stars but we haven't owned it for long enough to be sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and good sound for a flat screen TV Works well on wi-fi, good picture, good performance on players.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect screen for our house We specifically wanted a 40 inch screen so it didn't dominate our sitting room. This is a fantastic TV, with very clear pictures and all the apps you need (except for Disney+). The various menus are fairly good - although as with most smart TVs having to switch between apps and use the directional keyboard to enter search terms can be a real faff, especially when four people in a family can't decide what to watch! I intend to solve this issue though by buying the latest Google TV Chromecast device. We bought a Sony soundbar with the TV which is really the icing on the cake. It has Dolby Atmos and when watching a full dolby film or show on Netflix the effect is incredible - better than the cinema, with total sound immersion.
Date published: 2021-02-22
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average TV Not quite as good as I expected, over priced in my view, trying to get the best picture not as easy as it should be, very little difference between some settings, the picture on my old Samsung is just as good, I am curious to know if anyone broadcasts in 4K, as far as I can see there is very little if any 4K broadcasts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic TV Great 40" TV, fits our space perfectly and looks very smart. Picture and sound are very good. Advice from Richer Sounds was excellent and delivery was faster than expected, thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality and easy to set up We had to wait some time for this TV to become available - due to Brexit and Covid related shortages and delays. It was worth the wait because this is clearly a well-made item with everything from packaging and the TV stand to the set itself showing precision and attention to detail. Having read reviews indicating difficulty setting up the TV I was pleasantly surprised both with how easily the stand assembled and fitted (easier with two people) and how straightforwrd every aspect of getting the TV connected and working turned out to be - including connection to a 10-year old Panasonic DVD player/recorder. The problem, mentioned by several reviewers, of reflections from the glass screen is a possible drawback but much depends on where the TV is installed and angling it to avoid this problem.
