has a WiFi connection

The 50LB561 has a WiFi connection, as do most of the other televisions that have been available for a comparable time to the 50LB561.

We compared all the other TVs with a WiFi connection to this TV and we think the Samsung UE50H6200[plb_2233929_price], and the LG 55LB730[plb_2233832_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
