Panasonic's feature-packed 40" FS503 is the perfect TV for the living area, or any other room in the house with its compact and convenient size. Sparkling Full HD resolution combines with High Dynamic Range for a deeper, more lifelike picture, and the suite of smart functions opens up a world of online entertainment. With the brand's My Home Screen platform you can download a huge range of apps to customise your interaction. So whether you're enjoying broadcast, catch-up or online services, the FS503 is the complete home entertainment hub.
Panasonic are one of the forerunners of contrast and colour-boosting High Dynamic Range (HDR). They've armed this TV with HDR tech for a greatly heightened colour range to deepen your view and show shades previously unseen in home entertainment. Expanding light, dark and every colour in between to new levels, this model's picture gets closer to real life.
Fabulous Full HD
The FS503 displays a picture that is crisp, clear and beautifully detailed. Displayed in 1080p Full HD picture resolution, it creates an immersive and engaging TV experience.
Sport & Game Modes: viewing modes specially tailored to immerse you in the drama of the sporting spectacle, and to deliver a super-responsive gaming experience.
USB HDD Recording: easily record programmes onto a USB memory stick. Pause live TV or play it back later. Just plug your USB device into one of the slots.
Swipe & Share: display your smart phone or tablet's content on the TV screen, with a simple swipe of the smart device's screen.
Intuitive Smart Platform
Powered by Firefox OS, ‘my Home Screen 3.0’ provides quick and intuitive access to the content you want. With regular updates, it will ensure that you stay on track with all the latest technology developments and content. Use a variety of apps from the TV's customisable home screen. Cloud services let you easily use fully-fledged, large-data games and a wealth of content services, so you can quickly switch over from watching TV to playing games, and it's compatible with Netflix, Amazon and Youtube, who offer streaming services*.
This Panasonic TV features Freeview Play. Combining catch-up TV, on-demand services and live television, watching what you want, when you want, is now easier than ever. It’s free from subscription and is compatible with existing broadband services too. Services such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5 are also available without having to open specific applications. This gives effortless scroll back so you never miss a second of your favourite shows.
With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller, choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TV’s sound quality and 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.
Take a look at our full range of soundbars.
If you want to connect your TV to a blu-ray player, games console, soundbar or soundbase then you'll need a HDMI cable.
