Product details

The Panasonic VIERA TXL-42FT60B Smart 3D 42" LED TV pairs an elegant design with a high-performance engine for superlative picture and sound quality – plus extensive Smart features.

Smartly does it


The range of internet-based features in this Panasonic Smart TV is impressive, from catch-up TV with BBC iPlayer to a full web browser thanks to integrated Ethernet and WiFi connectivity. A dual-core processor makes sure it all runs quickly and smoothly, uniting every feature without a hitch.

Connect to the internet without hassle and surf your favourite web pages very much as you would on a PC. Through the portal screen menu, you'll have complete access to a wide variety of content as you turn on the TV.

In addition to TV broadcasts, you'll enjoy internet videos and photos. Keep up with friends on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, and connect a separate web cam to enjoy large, high-definition Skype conversations.

Both Freeview and Freeview HD tuners are built in so that you can enjoy over 100 TV and radio services, including four high definition channels subscription-free - record one whilst watching on the other for a truly maximised TV experience.

Even more intelligent TV functions


The Panasonic VIERA T-XL42 FT60-B 42” TV features the customisable My Home Screen, where you can set up your own tailored screen layout to include favourite news, social media and video on demand apps; be they BBC iPlayer, YouTube or any number of the many other services available from the Viera Connect portal, Panasonic's own Cloud-based internet service. Enjoy three preset My Home Screens - themed TV, Lifestyle and Information - each offering relevant content and apps. Up to seven home members can have their very own My Home Screen.

Fully interactive remote control

The television also comes with a fantastic media remote, working in tandem with the new Viera Remote 2 App, available on iOS and Android. This gives you full control of your Viera TV using your Smartphone or Tablet PC, and providing easy use of Swipe & Share, Share & Save and all TV commands.

It also facilitates voice control, whereby you can say a keyword into the Touch Pad Controller or a connected smartphone to view search results onscreen and have them verbally read out. With this Voice Guidance service, you'll literally talk to your TV to work it!

Linking a smartphone or tablet device to the TV lets you freely share content and achieve incredibly easy TV operation.

Peerless picture quality

The VIERA TXL42 FT60B 3D 42" TV combines 1600 Hz BLS technology and a Hexa-Processing Engine to guarantee smooth onscreen motion and incredible picture detail, even when you're watching fast action scenes and sports events.

Its Full HD 1920 x 1080p LED display is edge-lit for maximum contrast and vibrant colour reproduction (not to mention more energy-efficient performance), and precise frame generation and insertion work seamlessly to create smoothly flowing images.

Flicker is minimised with fine light-emission control, so images are beautifully even and natural without suffering afterimages. By combining the IPS Panel, with its great 178-degree viewing angle characteristics, stunning images are generated with high levels of brightness, colour, and contrast even when viewed from an angle.

Compelling 3D television

All of this incredible high-definition picture technology really comes alive when you enjoy 3D content, whether it's from a Blu-ray disc, a DVD that's been converted from 2D to 3D or a 3D broadcast. Marvel as images attain a new depth and appear to jump out of the screen toward you. Two pairs of 3D glasses are included, and the set uses flicker-free Passive 3D technology for the most comfortable 3D viewing experience.

The 42” VIERA TXL42-FT60B Smart 3D TV also houses a formidable audio setup, with 18 W of pure, rich and natural cinematic sound generated by the two front speakers and subwoofer.

VR Audio Surround 2.1 technology is on hand to ensure that every detail and frequency is flawlessly reproduced, whether you're enjoying a music programme or a blockbuster movie. All of your entertainment will take on a thrilling new life with this incredible aural asset.

Complete range of TV connections

Use the three HDMI ports to link up a Blu-ray player or games console and enjoy content in the sparkling high resolution it deserves. A trusty SCART connection is on hand to attach a DVD player or older console, and there are both component and composite video inputs to connect a compatible camcorder or digital camera.

A USB 3.0 accepts compatible external drives and memory sticks so that you can enjoy content such as songs, videos and photos directly on the big screen. Use the SD card slot to view JPEG images and AVCHD camcorder video footage: simply take your memory card directly from your camera or camcorder and put it into the TV to view instantly in Full HD.

The VIERA TXL4-2FT6-0B also incorporates Eco Navigation technology and an Ambient Sensor to save power consumption according to room illumination and the presence of people in front of the set. Rated A+ for energy efficiency, the TV will save on your power bills and has a lower environmental impact to boot. Easy to use and easy on power consumption

Panasonic's Voice Guidance technology literally talks you through the set's many functions. There's also an onscreen eHelp guide available at the touch of a button, and internet and network content can be accessed via a wired Ethernet cable or the TV's Wireless LAN.

Advanced product design makes the FT60 Series particularly energy efficient, achieving an A+ energy rating. New materials in the LCD panel transmit light more effectively, and the LED backlight is the most efficient yet. Eco Navigation mode lets you adjust a variety of energy saving functions, including automatic picture brightness adjustment (Eco mode) and Auto Standby, with a single operation.

Don't forget your HDMI cables


Check out our range of HDMI cables to connect your input devices and to make sure your new TV has a perfect picture with improved transfer speeds. Look out for the Sandstrom Silver Series HDMI cables with their lifetime warranty.

Enjoy the very best of Smart TV entertainment and innovative control with the Panasonic VIERA TXL-42FT60B Smart 3D 42" LED TV, presenting all your entertainment with truly stunning high-resolution picture and sound that'll keep you glued to the screen.

Delivery and service

Home Delivery

We have a range of delivery options including next day if you order before 8pm in most areas. Free delivery is available between 7am and 7pm, 7 days a week.

Removed and Recycled for Free
Unlike many other retailers, we will take away your old product for free recycling when we deliver. Just remember to disconnect the appliance before we arrive (unless you have purchased installation).

Install TV to stand with demo

We can also install your new TV on the day we deliver, for most of the UK. Just add installation at the 'Confirm basket’ page at the checkout.

Here's what we'll do:
  • Discuss where the TV is to be situated and how you would like it set up.
  • Disconnect the existing TV, un-box and check the new TV and stand.
  • Assemble the TV and the stand and set the TV on it.
  • Tune in the TV, connect any existing equipment such as a Blu-ray player and games console, then tidy the cables.
  • If it’s a Smart TV, set it up to your existing network (internet connection required).
  • Give you a demo of the main features.
  • Take away your old TV and packaging for recycling if you’d like us to.

Note: Before we arrive, you will need to make sure you have the necessary cables: SCART, AVI HDMI etc. If it’s a Smart TV, you will need an existing internet connection and your new TV either has built-in Wi-Fi or you have purchased the compatible dongle.
