Netflix wants to help you pick the best smart TV you can. As such, it's launched its Netflix Recommended TV program, which is billed as helping us punters pick TVs "built for a superior internet TV experience".

In other words, the best smart TVs around.

Netflix made the announcement at CES in Las Vegas.

It's looking for TVs with the best performance, easy menu navigation and new features that improve, rather than detract, from the smart TV experience. Any TVs that come up to scratch with bear a Netflix Recommended TV logo.

Other criteria include fast turn-on times and app launches, and seamless video playback.

The streaming service will announce more criteria in the spring.

Sony, LG, Sharp, Vizio and Roku TV are all involved in the program, so expect to see their sets scrutinised soon.

Also at CES, Netflix announced it will work with Sony and LG to make sure its TVs are capable of showing HDR 4K content.
