netflix recommended tv

If you watch Netflix a lot, you might want to consider investing in a TV that's optimised for the service. Luckily, Netflix has slapped a 'Netflix Recommended' logo on sets that meet its criteria.

LG's 4K UHD TVs with WebOS 2.0 are the first to get the accolade, along with Sony's Android Full HDTVs. Roku TVs made by Hisense, Insignia and TCL will also get the logo when they go on sale.

So what makes them more suited for watching Netflix?

According to a blog post, Netflix is particularly excited about the Instant On feature on the Roku and Sony sets. These TVs wake up quickly and remember what you were doing when you powered down, just like your smartphone or tablet does.

They both also have a Netflix button in their remotes, which lets you jump straight to the service.

LG's tellies also "have made special optimisations" that help streaming services like Netflix launch faster, according to Netflix.

The Netflix button is also coming to smart TV remote controls in the UK. This will save you trawling through all the services on offer and let you jump straight into Netflix at the touch of a button.
