Yes, you would need a wireless LAN adapter DY-WL10E-K https://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-DY-WL10E-K-DY-WL-10E-Netzwerkadapter/dp/B003922QY4?tag=incepin-20 to plug it in USB port of TV then go into TV menu then Setup and run Network wireless setup to connect this TV to wifi modem for internet.

I have better alternate suggestion to make this a Smart TV.

Get Roku device that has builtin lots of internet apps, wifi etc to connect to wifi modem, plug Roku device into HDMI input of TV to get all latest video streaming channels on this TV.

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 month ago.

Roku device will cost less than LAN adapter and you can add/ remove channels (free or premium) as per choice into your Roku device easily.

Is the Roku device easy to purchase because the other item was from USA and although it said free shipping it wasn't.
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 month ago.

Roku device is easy to purchase and will be available in UK as well, let me check it..

I would need a streaming player as opposed to Rocku streaming Stick?
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 month ago.

Let me explain, Roku device is an 'internet video streaming player' that has all the features as you see on today's smart TV.

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 month ago.

Roku stick or Roku box, both will work and have same features, only difference is their physical size.

Would this work?http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/tv-and-home-entertainment/digital-and-smart-tv/smart-tv/roku-3500eu-streaming-stick-22067491-pdt.html
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 month ago.

Yes, it will work. This device plugs directly into HDMI input of TV, select that HDMI input in TV to get Roku home screen to proceed by using supplier Roku remote.

I don't understand that last bit... I need the Roku remote?
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 month ago.

Remote and stick will come in package as you can see both things in that link

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
will the Roku only provide video streaming? As opposed to the Wireless LAN adapter that will enable internet use on TV??
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 month ago.

Roku has builtin wifi adapter and will connect to your wifi modem easily like a cellphone or Laptop etc

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 month ago.

You wont need any other wireless adapter for this or any other TV.
