    Default Can I upgrade panny viera software

    Hello
    I have a panasonic viera tv a few years back. BBC iplayer is still fine but it has no facility to get 4od. Is there any way to update the software on it or do they want you to buy the latest tv.
    Any help appreciated.
    Thanks

    You connect it to your network and go to the settings, software update section or you can try to download from the Panasonic website and put onto a USB/SD and install from there.

    It depends which model it is. I've got a Panasonic 2011 Plasma (still the best for SD picture) and they never had apps for any online stuff Five, 4OD etc.

    Get a cheap Android box or an Amazon FireStick and don't look back.

    What model is that out of interest? My old P50V10 (first THX certified panel apparently) is still going strong at my parents, I upgraded to an LG OLED for the lounge last year and have a cheap Hisense in my room.

    TX-P50VT30B it's still plugged into the router and iPlayer works but it's too slow. We've got a Fire TV stick we bought on Black Friday (which is not far away) with sideloaded apps like Kodi etc. It's great for iPlayer, ITVHub, 4OD, MyFive, Netflix, Amazon Prime etc.

    Yes the sticks or even the Fire TV box are good, I found the stick was a bit laggy in Kodi so I got the box but now I only really use Plex and my TVs ave that built in. Occasionally use my Amazon box to play emulators though!
