The Sony KDL-32R405 does not support smart TV, unlike most of the other similar spec televisions that are a comparable age to the KDL-32R405 which support smart TV.

We compared all the other TVs which also support smart TV to this TV and we think the UE48J5580, or the UE32J5502 both from Samsung or the Philips 40PFK5500/12 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
