Loving it! Very impressed with this. Extremely easy set-up of the FreeviewHD and the Wi-fi! Sound quality is great, picture is excellent and it looks lovely even switched off. Already told lots of my friends and family about it. 16 September 2014
Television I was very happy with this t.v and the excellent help from the lovely young lady , only gripe is that the next week the price reduced by £30 ! 09 September 2014
Looks great, great visuals too. 04 September 2014
brilliant buy. this tv has everything i wanted from a H.D tv, and it was excellent value. 02 September 2014
Great TV If you are looking for a good screen, sound and picture then this TV is perfect, however if your are looking for a modern smart tv I wouldn't recommended, you cannot add additional apps and the only one's I can use are youtube and BBC I player, netflix etc are not available. Overall a great buy for a TV size upgrade 28 August 2014

Answer: 
It has a USB port. Can be used to play media from a USB stick or to attach a WIFI dongle. You can also use the smart tv functions without a dongle by attaching it to your router with a cable (not included).

Hi Dave,
The TV has 2 USB ports. If you want to connect the TV to a wireless network to access the smarTVue portal you will need to the dongle that is associated with the product (cat reference 108/2216). Alternatively you can connect the TV to a router by the LAN connection on the back of the product.

Answer: 
Yes the TV will function as a normal TV without connection to the internet - connection to internet is only required to use smart apps. You can use a Blu-Ray with it - that is your choice.

Answer: 
Hi Peeky,
To watch the Freeview HD channels (normal TV) you need an aerial input.

The wi-fi dongle is required if you want to connect the TV to your wireless network and access the smarTVue portal which contains the BBC iPlayer app as well as other social networking apps.

Answer: 
Hi Donna,
To access the smarTVue portal you can connect the TV to your broadband either through the wi-fi dongle or through the LAN connection on the back of the product (If your broadband router is close to the TV I would recommend this).

Unfortunately the Netflix app is not compatible with this product.

Hi Danny,
This model does have a USB port that will allow you to connect either a USB drive or an external hard drive to view media. With regards to the external hard drive this must have an external power source.
