Does Not Support Smart TV Features

Most of the other comparable spec televisions that were released around the same time as the F40B3813 support smart TV features, however the TCL-Digital F40B3813 does not support smart TV features.

We compared all the other TVs which also support smart TV features to this television and we think the Philips 48PFH5500[plb_2861476_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
