Panasonic VIERA 42" Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV - TH-42PZ80Q

Product Details

Panasonic VIERA 42" Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV, Model TH42PZ80Q


  • Tru2way™ technology lets you eliminate the cable box **
    Tru2way is a new technology being introduced by major cable service operators. This same technology is built-in to the VIERA PZ80Q Series of HDTVs -- allowing you to receive full interactive programming from your tru2way-enabled local cable company without having to rent a traditional cable receiver box. This means no more monthly box rental fees, no need for two separate remote controls, and less extra equipment to clutter your home theater setup. Also, if you move to another tru2way-enabled area, you'll be able to use your TV with no equipment changes required
    • ** Cable service subscription still required. Not all cable systems are compatible with this feature. Please check with your cable provider to confirm availability of service
