8 Reasons Against

Most TVs of a similar age and type to the 42LY540 do not have a WiFi connection. The 42LY540 is no exception to this as it too does not have a WiFi connection.

It is worth considering other TVs which also have a WiFi connection including the Panasonic TX-L32E30, the Samsung UE48H6470, or the LG 47LB670 which is also higher rated.
