Answer: 
Yes, the TV will work, but not any of the "smart" functions. Note that you can use a network cable to connect to your router instead of a dongle if you prefer (that's what I've done at the moment).

Answer: 
Hi Peter,
This model does not feature the Netflix app and it is not possible to load the app onto this model either. You can however connect this TV to external products such as Blu Ray players or Playstation to enjoy your Netflix subscription.

Netflix and Dongle

8 months ago
Does this TV require a specific dongle to connect wirelessly, and does this TV provide Netflix? As 2 previous answers contradict each other as one says yes and another no, so not sure if it does or not.

Answer: 
Hi Ciaran,
The product requires the dongle to connect to a wireless network or if you have the router located near the TV you can connect it via the LAN connection.

Regarding Netflix, the product does not feature Netflix, nor does the dongle provide Netflix. If you have a Blu Ray player or Playstation that you can stream Netflix through these devices an connect them through the HDMI socket.

Answer: 
Hi Mick,
The EPG on this model allows you to view the next 7 days broadcasts and set reminders on any particular broadcasts that you want to watch. The EPG is not a catch up facility which is what I believe you are looking for.

This model does feature the BBC iPlayer app and once connected to your home network allows you to catch up on the last 7 days BBC broadcasts plus much more.

Answer: 
Hi Jonny bee line,
The TV requires a standard aerial input to access the regular TV channels.

The dongle is required if you want to wirelessly connect the product to your home network to then run the Hitachi smarTVue portal which features apps such as BBC iPlayer, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

Answer: 
Hi,

The dongle allows the wireless signal sent out by your wi-fi router to be received by the TV.
The Hitachi 40 Inch Full HD 1080p Freeview HD Smart LED TV supports wi-fi but does not come with the dongle, this is sold separately.

Alternatively you can connect the TV directly to your router using an Ethernet cable.
I hope this helps.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A
