Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The 24HBC05 does not support Wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other TVs of this age and spec also do not support Wi-Fi.

We compared this television to all the other TVs with a Wi-Fi and we think the Cello C32227 (£139.99) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Ethernet Port

24 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 24 inch TV.

Other 24" TVs currently available which you might want to consider include the Samsung UE24H4003 (£115.95) which has better reviews; or the Toshiba 24J1533 (£115.29) which is cheaper.

If this TV display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the Hisense LTDN32D50 (£169) (31.5" and higher rated); or the Samsung J4100 (£139.99) (28" and cheaper).
