Netflix thinks that these television sets are best for their shows
Cutting the cord in favor of a Netflix subscription (or web-streaming subscriptions in general) is merely part of the process in moving towards a true Internet-connected age of entertainment. The second half - acquiring a 4K HDR television set – is a little costlier, but it takes advantage of the growing list of 4K HDR content made available through these services.
If Netflix is your primary source for shows, you’ll be pleased to know that the streaming service put out a list of “recommended” 2017 television sets that favors their service.
Basically, if the smart TV starts their app up quickly, has easy access to Netflix (a physical button or icon), and the most updated Netflix version with a decent UI, it passes Netflix’s criteria for recommendation. Interestingly, we’ve actually covered these products when they were released at CES 2017 earlier this year. They are none other than:
- 2017 LG 4K UHD TVs with WebOS 3.5
- 2017 Samsung 7, 8, 9, and Q-series Smart TVs
- 2017 Sony Android TVs
We've also put together a how-to piece for choosing a compatible 4K television (HDR support recommendations can be found in the middle of the article).
If you’re looking out for particular TV models that work best with Netflix along with other TV features, you’ll know where to look (hint: it’s us). Now, all Netflix needs is a recommendation to a decent martial arts choreographer for their latest web series, Iron Fist.
