2017 List of Netflix Recommended TVs Released

Are you a Netflix binger? Do you suffer if it takes your TV more than a few seconds to power up and give you a fix of whatever show you are addicted to? Maybe this list can help.

Would be nice to see the actual list in the article instead of a summary. Maybe I missed something.

Thank you, useful information. As I did not immediately think of going to the Netflix website and there to look.

I purchased a 24"insignia rokutv and it is amazing for netflix / other streaming content. It is the perfect fit for the kitchen / bedroom.

^^^^That.

I have a Roku Ultra, and when I saw how my mother-in-law's Roku TV handles things (including an icon for antenna), I was completely sold. It's smooth as silk, and no futzing around with teaching elderly how to change inputs, etc., etc...

Plus it behaves like any other Roku you might have in the house. I would suggest the Ultra for others though, because frankly that voice-search (through the remote) thing is priceless.

Otherwise I'd have to use justwatch.com (and its app, both of which are good) to figure out where things are across the Netflix/HBO/Starz/Showtime/Hulu/Amazon/-osphere.

From your posted link, they are displays, not TV sets. They all have in fine print the fact that a tuner, sold separately, not controlled by the recommended display device's remote, and not available with your purchase, is required for the display to function as a TV. No way is that a quick, easy, cheap, or convenient way to watch television.

Where is that I fine print? I don't see it.
A pure display panel wouldn't be able to pass the requirements, because they're all about the built-in media capabilities.


P.S. FWIW, I'd love to have some pure displays on the market - no brains, just a direct drive displayport (at full res/fps, anything else would be impossible) and drivers for direct PC control. Of course they'd have to be cheaper for that loss of capability.

I've never understood why people want to buy a TV where the software is going to be obsolete in a couple years when they could just get a stream box, or console, or chromecast.. You're paying a fortune for mostly crappy software anyway. Maybe someone could enlighten me though.. Do smart TVs get regular updates? Or do they just kind of die off when the next generation comes around? That's just my suspicion.

They are mostly obsolete when you buy them IMO, unless you buy the latest tech and if you do, you pay a lot for that privilege. Nonetheless if I resist buying the best technology then its never been cheaper to buy a big screen TV.

Hello Remitten!Sadly that is their business model!! !!Programmed obsolescence...... almost every tech company does this, as my granma says "Old things are made to last forever" It applies on equipment too, old stuff is heavy and well built.

Netflix is kind of obsolete too with all of the free sites out there, which alternatives to netflix do you guys use?

I think they are certifying based on how easy to access netflix app on Tv, like dedicated button on remote control and best available picture quality to view netflix like support for 4K/HDR/Dolby vision etc for supported movies/videos etc.

I beg to disagree. Netflix is spending 8 Billion a year on new content. Who else does that? Answer: Nobody.

Interestingly how much money these companies paid Netflix for such advertising?) It seems to me, that this testing is just an advertising move, I would not consider LG for myself.....

Netflix DVDs

If some are not aware of this,Netflix offers a mail service where you can sign up to have 1/2 or more DVDs sent to you (your choice) to watch, or whatever, and when you send them back, more are automatically sent, pay by the month, yes they have Blu Ray also,,,

My thought exactly. I bought a regular tv and a 4GB ram/16GB rom tv box, works like a charm.

Not much to add since the previous post. Netflix Originals ebb and flow. Price increase aside, they're on flow now, with "Roma" nominated for 10 Oscars.

Overall, I currently prefer Amazon Prime. Bosch, Goliath, Amazon shipping.

Both Network Services stream beautifully with the help of Panasonic DMP-UB900.

Some People just want the simplicity of and all-in-one solution.
I just want my TV to look good, my Blu Ray player to play Blu Ray discs (4K HRD/DV of course) and my streaming box to stream every service I use...again in 4K HDR/DV.

Eventually the TV (TCL 6 series) won't be so smart but it should still work as a display even if the apps become obsolete. Hopefully long before then there will be a streaming box that hits all the check boxes but right now that device does not exist. ARC is playing nicely with my AVR so for now I'm good.
