Netflix has named sets from three smart TV manufacters that are offering better usability, faster performance, and new features that make getting to Netflix and other internet TV services as easy as getting to live TV.
The three Tv sets are the 2017 LG 4K UHD TVs with WebOS 3.5, the 2017 Samsung 7, 8, 9, and Q-series Smart TVs and the 2017 Sony Android TVs.
“These devices passed a rigorous evaluation process based on factors our members tell us are important. New criteria for this year’s Netflix Recommended TV designations include: you can power on your TV and start using Netflix or other internet TV apps in just a few seconds; You can switch between apps or switch from apps to live TV and back again almost instantly.
“Also, the Netflix interface appears in hi-resolution making graphics and text clearer, sharper, and brighter, making for a higher quality, more immersive experience.
“As with previous years, Netflix Recommended TV continues to evaluate whether Netflix is easily accessible from wherever you are within your TV menu, including having a Netflix button on the remote that can turn on the TV and go directly into Netflix within a few seconds. We also verify whether the device comes with the latest version of Netflix and includes our newest features.’
These TVs will be in all countries where Netflix is available, though specific model availability varies by region.
