Supports Smart TV
The KD-75X8505 supports smart TV. Most of the other TVs of a similar age and type to the KD-75X8505 also support smart TV.
There are a number of alternative TVs which support smart TV currently available that you might want to look at including a cheaper TV such as the Samsung UE75JU7000[plb_2824304_price] or you might consider a higher rated TV such as the Samsung UE78JS9500[plb_2824104_price].
We compared all the other TVs which also support smart TV to this TV and we think the Samsung UE78JU7500[plb_2824275_price] is also worth considering.
Has a Wi-Fi
Like most of the other TVs of this type and age, the KD-75X8505 has a wi-Fi.
We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a wi-Fi and we think the Samsung UE78JS9500[plb_2824104_price] which has better reviews; or the Samsung UE75JU7000[plb_2824304_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
It is worth considering alternative televisions which also have a wi-Fi including the LOEWE 54433B40[plb_2973680_price].
