Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

A lot lower annual energy consumption Edit

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.
