  • Enhance your home entertainment setup with the Panasonic VIERA TX-40DS500B Smart 40" LED TV.

    Visual quality

    The VIERA TX-40DS500B offers stunning Full HD visuals on a large 40" LED screen, Brightness is enhanced thanks to the Bright Panel Plus, combining LED light, panel and driving technology. This makes it an ideal choice for rooms that have lots of ambient light, allowing you to enjoy high quality entertainment clearly.

    Fast action looks smoother thanks to a 400 Hz Backlight Motion Rate which adjusts the backlight to remove motion blur. As a result, you'll see every detail clearly without smearing or juddering.

    Irish Digital Ready and Freetime

    You can access a range of entertainment options thanks to Irish Digital Ready, with a wide range of both standard and HD channels available subscription free.

    For further versatility, the VIERA TX-40DS500B includes Freetime. This allows you to scroll back through the previous seven days worth of entertainment to catch up on programmes you might have missed from BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5.

    Smart TV

    The VIERA TX-40DS500B offers you access to catch-up TV services such as Netflix and My5, as well as streaming services such as Netflix. Simply connect the TV to the internet using the built-in WiFi and start exploring a whole new world of entertainment.

    There is also a full web browser available, as well as the option to set your own personalised home page for a truly personalised experience.

    By using the VIERA Remote app, you can even use your smart device to control the TV, as well as mirroring the contents onto the screen. Using Swipe and Share, you can share your favourite photos and videos with your friends and family on the large screen with just the flick of your finger.


    Capable of being wall mounted for extra versatility (kit sold separately), the VIERA TX-40DS500B fits effortlessly into your existing home entertainment setup thanks to its range of connections. With two HDMI connections (one of which is ARC compatible), a SCART connection and both component and composite inputs, the TV can easily be connected to your other devices and peripherals.

    A USB 2.0 port also allows you to view photographs and videos on the TV screen, while the DLNA compatibility means that you can also share these files wirelessly from compatible devices.
