A Better Netflix Experience.

Getting a new TV but not sure where to start? The Netflix Recommended TV program helps you identify which TVs deliver a better experience for Netflix and other apps by rigorously testing performance, ease-of-use, and other features.

How does a TV get recommended by Netflix?

It can be overwhelming to understand all of the options when buying a TV. While price, picture quality, and screen size can be easy to research, it is hard to measure a TV’s true performance and ease of use. Our criteria are designed to bring you a faster, easier and better viewing experience from beginning to end. To achieve a recommendation, a smart TV must meet at least 5 of the 7 criteria listed below.
