The new designation singles out displays that offer the best Netflix and smart TV experience
LG's 2015 4K OLED and LED TVs qualify for the "Netflix Recommended" designation. This title ensures that the televisions provide superior Netflix performance.
"The Netflix Recommended TV designation for our Ultra HD TVs recognizes LG's exceptional Smart TV performance and user interface," said Dave VanderWaal, vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. "LG's 4K OLED and LED Smart TVs featuring the advanced webOS 2.0 platform offer an unbeatable combination of breath-taking picture quality and speed, as well as a streamlined, intuitive interface for the best Netflix experience possible."
In order to achieve Netflix Recommended status, TVs have to meet five out of seven required criteria: Fast App Launch, Fast App Resume, Fast Video Playback, Netflix Button, Easy Netflix Access, TV Instant On, and Latest Netflix Version. LG's Netflix Recommended displays include the EG9600 UHD OLED TV series, the UF9500 PRIME UHD LED TV series, the UF8500 3D UHD LED TV with Cinema Screen series, the UF7700 UHD LED TV series, and the UF7600 UHD LED TV series.
