Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The 40HFL5010 supports Wi-Fi. Most of the other recently released medium display diagonal TVs also support Wi-Fi.

We compared all the other televisions which support Wi-Fi to this TV and we think the Samsung UE48J5200 (£319), and the Hitachi 40HB6T62 (£303.99) both of which are cheaper; or the Samsung UE40K6300 (£329) which has better reviews are also worth considering.
