TV model numbers - country variation info?


Standard Member

I'm currently looking for a plasma or lcd in France, where, naturally, most TVs on sale are intended for the French market and thus have different model number endings to those found in the UK. Does anyone know a good source of info for finding the comaparable UK models? Eg, there is a Panasonic 42" on sale here for 1190 euro designated TH-42PZ81. Not sure whether that's the same as the UK model PZ80B or PZ8B.

Any advice/info welcome!

that model,is the TH-42PZ81B over here in the uk, its the one with freesat built in, and not the same as the 42PZ80B,or the PZ8B.
most european models will be similar in specs,and really only the tuners and some minor differences will occur.
