Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

The 42LY960 has a WiFi connection, unlike most of the other TVs that came out around the same time as the 42LY960 which do not have a WiFi connection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other TVs with a WiFi connection currently available including cheaper TVs such as the LG 49LX761[plb_3154424_price].

We compared this television to all the other TVs with a WiFi connection and we think the LG 47LY760[plb_2816590_price], or the Sony FWL-48W705[plb_3149152_price] is also worth considering.
