Why can't you buy Panasonic TV's in the US anymore no in best buy or Walmart?
I thought Panasonic were the best TV brand and humiliate Sony and Samsung or am I wrong.

Panasonic says it will stop making TV panels by end-September
May 31, 2016 /
Its Himeji plant will continue to produce screens for vehicle dashboards and medical equipment, but output will drop to a quarter of the current 810,000 units a month in terms of 32-inch panels, Panasonic said.
Some of Panasonic’s television sets already use panels from rival manufacturers such as South Korea’s LG Display Co Ltd.

Unfortunately, Panasonic doesn't see the US as a good market right now.
Too many cheapskate consumers and not enough smart ones.
I'm disappointed, too, because it is, so far as I can tell, the best brand.
There should be a way to import one, if at a considerable additional cost.
Since today's TVs have universal power supplies,
there should be no concern about voltage and frequency.
One problem might be the built-in tuner,
which will not necessarily be capable of ATSC reception,
but if you don't care about over - the - air, that won't matter.
Warranty coverage will probably not be available.
(But who needs a warranty if the thing isn't likely to fail to start with?)
