Panasonic has finally announced its full lineup of OLED and Mini-LED TVs for 2024, with three new OLED models joining its flagship Z95A television that was announced at CES 2024. They were announced alongside its new W95A Mini-LED TV and a bunch of more affordable models that are among the first in the world to feature the TiVo operating system.


At its CES presentation in January, Panasonic revealed that it’s updating its TV model naming system and dropping its homegrown My Home Screen operating system in favor of the Fire TV platform developed by Amazon. It also revealed its flagship OLED TV for this year, the Panasonic Z95A (known as the Z93A in some regions).

As we saw earlier this year, the Panasonic Z95A is the only model in this year’s lineup to feature the new Master OLED Ultimate panel, which is based on LG Display’s next-generation WRGB OLED panel with the latest implementation of Micro Lens Array or MLA. It’s expected to deliver some of the highest brightness levels seen on any OLED TV, and will compete directly with LG Electronics’s G4, Philips’ OLED909 and the latest QD-OLED TVs from Samsung Electronics.

The step down Panasonic Z90A (pictured, above) comes with a slightly less capable Master OLED Pro panel, which is a customized version of a regular OLED panel, rather than one with MLA. That said, it will still deliver higher brightness than standard OLED panels, and is meant to compete with models such as the LG C4 and Philips OLED809.

Like the Z95A, the Z90A will support 4K@144Hz and the latest gaming features, including Game Mode Extreme, enabled by a pair of HDMI 2.1 ports. It will be available in 42-inch, 48-inch, 55-inch and 65-inch size options, though the smaller two options do not come with the customized panel.

The Panasonic Z90A features the same HCX Pro AI Processor MKII upgrade as that found on the Z95A, and there’s a Dynamic Theatre Surround Pro audio technology system with front-firing speakers that delivers an immersive soundscape with far-field voice control from Alexa.

Further down the list is the Panasonic Z85A (pictured, below), which comes with a 120Hz regular OLED panel without any customizations, features the same HCX Pro AI Processor MK II, and will be available in the same four size options.


Finally, Panasonic’s entry-level OLED TV is the Z80A, which uses the first generation HCX processor, delivering the HDR quality images that we know OLED displays are capable of, at a more affordable price. The Z80A will come in just two sizes though, in 55-inches and 65-inches.

All of Panasonic’s OLED TVs will feature the company’s Penta Tuner and IPTV home network capabilities, the HbbTV Operator App for live and on-demand content, USB recording, an advanced Channel Editor, and the My App button for easy access to these wider content offerings. There will also be Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and Filmmaker Mode, as well as the new Game Control board with different sound modes. They will all run a customized version of the Fire TV platform.

Moving onto Panasonic’s Mini-LED TV range, the flagship here will be the W95A MiniLED TV, available in 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch models. It will come with many of the same features as the Z90A, with the MK II processor and a 144Hz refresh rate. That also applies to the Panasonic W90A TV, which comes with a full array LED panel and is available in 43-inches, 50-inches, 55-inches and 65-inches. The same four sizes will also be available for the W80A and W60A TVs.

One notable difference with the W60A TV is that it will feature the TiVo OS platform as opposed to Fire TV. In that respect, it’s similar to the entry-level S55 and S45 models, which feature 60Hz panels and come in 24-inch, 32-inch and 40-inch options, which round out the company’s LCD TV lineup.

TiVo’s operating system is designed to be more user-friendly than existing TV platforms, billing itself as a “content-first” platform, but it remains to be seen if the actual experience is any better for viewers.
