Netflix has named the first TVs entitled to carry the new ‘Netflix Recommended’ accolade.
The goal of the Netflix Recommended programme, announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, is designed to give people insight into which smart TV models deliver what it deems a “superior smart TV experience.” This means that the TV will offer easy access to Internet TV services, faster performance, and new features that enable a next-generation smart TV experience.
The first batch of TVs to have achieved the TV designation include the LG 4K UHD TVs w/ webOS 2.0, Sony Android Full HDTVs and Roku TVs from Hisense, Insignia, and TCL.
“The goal of the program is to give people insight into which models meet those needs and deliver a superior smart TV experience,” comments Netflix. “When you’re shopping for a new TV and see the Netflix Recommended TV logo, it means that TV will offer easy access to Internet TV services, faster performance, and new features that enable a next-generation smart TV experience.”
