The 42PFH5209 does not have a WiFi connection. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 42PFH5209 also do not have a WiFi connection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative televisions which also have a WiFi connection including the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], the Samsung UE48H6470[plb_2240459_price], or the LG 47LB670[plb_2232214_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

If you would prefer a TV that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the LG 42LW579[plb_326450_price], or the Samsung UE40H6470[plb_2233881_price] which also has a higher rating.
