Included in the package we also find a practical remote controller which will allow you to quickly and easily access all the functions and apps of the Smart TV.
The technology inside
Entering the beating heart of the TV, we find a HCX Pro AI processor, the new processor that has now become a must in Panasonic Premium TVs.

For this review, we tested the Panasonic JX940 Smart TV for about 20 days, during which time it became our home entertainment HUB. All the apps and functions that we have just seen, are at our fingertips with the included remote control. Not at all small and compact and at least at the beginning, not very intuitive, but able to manage any TV setting. There is no shortage of Apps, from the most useful such as streaming ones, to the less relevant ones such as pre-installed games. In addition, during our test it was also made available for most Panasonic TVs Disney +which makes us understand Panasonic’s attention to always stay up to date on the latest and most interesting apps.
We particularly appreciated the energy saving functions that show great attention by the company to the theme “Ecology“, Extremely important especially in recent years. Voice control, as anticipated, still needs some filing, but in general it is able to understand everything that is said to it so as to avoid typing on the screen keyboard via remote control, the Achilles heel of Smart TVs.
