Product information

The Panasonic AS740B transforms the way you watch TV with integrated freetime, catch up TV, 3D and Smart apps. Control everything through the easy-to-use Home Screen, or just sit back and tell the TV what to do using the built-in Voice Assistant. You can even stream TV and recordings to wherever you are with the TV Anywhere function.

Smooth Full HD 3D
More than just Full HD, the Panasonic AS740B comes with 1200Hz backlight blinking that creates fuller, smoother motion. The 1080p panel is also tuned for dramatic contrast so every detail shines

Freetime TV
With freetime you can take advantage of roll back TV for the past week, as well as enjoy access to a programme guide that displays catch up services like BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand 5.

TV Anywhere
Transfer TV or recorded programmes to your smartphone or tablet wherever you are. Thanks to advanced cloud servers you can watch your content just about anywhere with a fast enough internet connection.

Camera & voice control
The Panasonic Voice Assistant helps you to find your content without fiddling with menus and folders. Voiceprint recognition will even log you straight into your account complete with your own home screen and custom settings. Skyping friends and family is simple too thanks to the built-in Full HD camera with face recognition.

Apps, games & sharing
Connect to friends on Facebook, share your thoughts on Twitter or just browse the internet from your armchair. This TV connects via Wi-Fi or Ethernet so you can enjoy more services in one place. With catch up TV, fitting the best programmes into your busy schedule is simple.

My Home Screen
The Home Screen is your personal gateway to everything this TV has to offer. Customise it with shortcuts to your favourite apps and content or send it messages from your smartphone when you’re out and about (ideal for staying in touch with the family).

Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Panasonic Viera TX-47AS740 LED HD 1080p 3D Smart TV, 47&quot;, Freeview HD with freetime 4 5 2 2
Exceptional tv I bought this tv because I wanted a 47" TV with freesat. The freeview coverage is terrible where I live in Devon so freesat is essential to get all the free satellite channels. I usually have Samsung TVs but fancied a change and Panasonic seem to be getting brilliant reviews at the moment. I wasn't disappointed as this TV is exceptional. The picture quality is the best I have ever seen. I also like the design which is silver all the way round and fits my room really well. I still can't get over how many brilliant features there are on this TV, one of the best being that I can watch my TV on my iPad anywhere in the world using 'TV anywhere. ' The service in John Lewis was also very, very good. Really couldn't be happier with my purchase! 29 July 2014
Expensive but lots of features. You might be fine with the cheaper AS650 which appears to be the same except AS740 has FreeSat tuner, built in Camera for Skype etc. third USB port (which is also v3.0 not 2.0). Judging picture is always partly a matter of personal taste. No disappointment for me: HD Football and other content appear 'holographic' at times and my eye hasn't noticed any motion blur. Maybe not the best with SD content and the reviews are correct that inherient contrast isn't the best and when picture is very dark you see the backlight switch off - infrequent but not subtle. Plenty of features, and I don't think any TV is as responsive as the latest smartphones e.g. YouTube app can take a good few seconds to start up via WiFi or ethernet cable. Mirroring my Sony Xperia Z android phone works well, though WiFi then unavailable on both TV and phone - possibly device specific. The interface is smartphone-like e.g. mutliple Home screens and you can configure which Apps including window showing curent channel/input as you like. I could pick out some niggles, but best interface by miles, over anything else I've seen. Of course, Android TV is coming to many big manufacturers next year, but there'll always be something to wait for... 14 July 2014
