The FX800 ensures that you have access to all the content you could possibly need in order to enjoy this spectacular TV.
Satellite or UHF, we have you covered
Built-in Dual Tuners
Unlike many other places in the world, New Zealand homes have a distinct mixture of satellite and UHF tuners depending on whereabouts in the country they live. While some other global brands just cover off UHF capable homes with models designed for overseas markets, at Panasonic we have ensured that our TVs are fitted with both tuners especially for Kiwis.
Freeview from the word go
Built-in Freeview Live TV & On Demand
Panasonic TVs are set up with Freeview ready to go so that set up is easy and you can enjoy all free-to-air channels right away. More than just live TV, you can now enjoy Freeview On Demand on your Panasonic TV. Binge on entire seasons or catch up on what you have missed, it really is up to you.

Built-in Netflix, Lightbox, YouTube, and more
How we watch TV has changed and we know that you’re looking for more than just live, free-to-air programming. Panasonic Smart TVs have your favourite streaming sources already built-in and ready to go.* We believe your TV should be able to accommodate your varied and unique viewing preferences so that you have a wealth of choice between, live and on demand, free-to-air and subscriptions, and traditional telly and apps. All you need to do is log in once to your content source of choice and it seamlessly becomes part of your TV watching experience.
* Some content sources and streaming platforms will charge a regular subscription fee independent of Panasonic.

Take your TV with you wherever you go
Have you heard of TV Anytime? It is Panasonic’s unique and innovative feature which allows you to access your TV from a tablet or phone regardless of where in the world you might be. You can use the system to set recordings on your TV or, even better, you can stream live broadcasts or recorded content from your TV to your smart device - even if you're outdoors. All you need is an internet connection and "Panasonic Media Center App" in your smart device. Even thought On Demand provides us with easy ways to catch up on missed programmes, there are still things like sport, the news, and live events that we simply don’t want to miss. TV Anytime means you don’t have to miss those moments.
Expect more from your TV
4K HDR Game Mode
We know that for many, buying a TV is about more than sport, TV shows, and NETFLIX. TVs are the centre of our gaming experiences too and so our engineers got to work to make sure that our optimal picture quality was matched by speed and feedback performance for the ultimate in gaming capability. By switching to 4K HDR Game Mode you’ll halve the display lag time from 40 milliseconds to 20 milliseconds. Superior image processing means quicker response times and an experience of instantaneous game play. Additionally, as the name suggests, the mode is perfect for 4K capable games; you’ll notice the difference.
What is HDR?
Put simply, it is better. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. A TV with HDR expands the expressible brights and darks to achieve more detailed images. When images are captured and displayed in 4K HDR they show greater colour and brightness range than even the naked eye can take in resulting in exquisite detail. Some TVs are stuck at an outdated 100-300 nits (brightness measurement) – reflecting the days of CRT TVs (the tube ones that used to weigh a tonne and had to sit a metre away from the wall because they were so bulky). In producing images at this level, a lot of details are lost in dark and bright colour areas. HDR delivers real-life details by increasing the brightness level to 1000 nits.
Multi HDR Support
Support for multiple HDR formats
Panasonic TVs support now multiple HDR formats, such as HDR10 the standard HDR format for films and UHD Blu-ray discs, and now also Hybrid Log Gamma, the HDR format for broadcast TV developed by the BBC and Japan's NHK.
True to the Filmmakers’ Vision
Panasonic has long understood that delivering the most accurate TV pictures possible means working with the creative community who actually make all those films and TV shows you love to watch. This is why there’s been a Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory in the heart of Los Angeles for more than 20 years, collaborating with film studios, individual directors, cinematographers, and colourists for the latest technology.
Class in Glass
Turning your TV into a window to the world
The glass frames around the new FX800 create a dazzling impression of beautiful pictures emerging as if from nowhere. Their seamless 360 degrees design and the elegantly minimalist appearance looks stunning in any room, and by removing the traditional sense of the ‘technology’ behind the pictures, they make it easier to become totally immersed in what you’re watching.
IPS LED Super Bright Panel Plus
Makes pictures look crisper and more dynamic with a wide viewing angle
Everything from colour vibrancy and naturalism to sharpness and clarity benefits from extra brightness. IPS LED Super Bright Plus technology injects more brightness into pictures by putting high-efficiency LED lights behind an exceptionally transmissive IPS panel. Plus, the panel allows for equally gorgeous pictures, colours, and contrast, from any viewing angle.
Local Dimming Pro
Real-life images created with high contrast
Backlight control and signal processing combine to control the brightness in thousands of areas for outstanding contrast expression. They also render fine hues and produce images with exceptional depth.
Easy connectivity for sound & media playback
Bluetooth® Audio Link
Panasonic Audio Link gives you the power to use your TV and other home entertainment products however you want. Play music, podcasts, audiobooks, (whatever audio content you choose) from your smart phone or tablet through your TV’s speakers; just turn on Bluetooth® and you’re good to go. Or if you want more volume or multidirectional sound, use Audio Link to play audio from another Bluetooth® capable speaker or sound system! No complicated settings, just wireless audio flexibility!
Easy viewing of your photos and videos on your TV screen
Media players let you play back on your big screen any multimedia content - be it photos, movies or music - stored on USB memory sticks.
Plenty of plug-in
4 HDMI & 3 USB inputs
Sometimes we still need to physically plug devices in so Panasonic TVs have plenty of terminals for HDMIs and USBs for you to use without having to switch in and out too much. Plus, TV programmes can be recorded onto a USB Memory Stick or external hard disk drive simply by pressing the REC button on the remote control. It doesn't get much easier than that!
