The TVs Netflix recommends you buy in 2019

Netflix has published its list of recommended TVs for 2019, detailing which TVs you should be using to enjoy the best experience possible on the streaming platform.

The company publishes its list every year, based on certain criteria which ensure that the models listed deliver an impressive Netflix experience.

For TVs to achieve a recommendation from Netflix, they must fulfil at least five of seven criteria listed by the streaming platform.

These criteria are based around the responsiveness of the app, the quality of the video, and the accessibility of the Netflix menu.

Below are the specific criteria for Netflix’s recommended TVs, of which five are required to be included in the list:

  • The TV must wake up instantly and remember where you were.
  • Netflix must always open quickly when it is launched.
  • The TV remote must include a dedicated Netflix button which launches the streaming service.
  • The Netflix app must be easy to find from the TV’s launch menu.
  • The TV must update in the background to ensure that the latest Netflix content is always available.
  • Netflix’s high-resolution interface must be supported by the display.
  • The TV must ship with the latest version of Netflix installed.

Only selected TV models carry the Netflix Recommended logo in 2019, but Netflix said that additional brands would be added as they become available and are designated.

Below are the current TV models recommended by Netflix.
