Here are Netflix's 2016 'Recommended TVs' Netflix has released their 2016 list of "Netflix Recommended TVs," and only two manufacturers made the cut.
The company states that a TV must meet at least five of seven specific criteria to get the badge: They must turn on instantly, must resume activity once it's been stopped, it must offer the latest version of the app, the app must launch quickly or resume quickly, and it must be easy to find the app either through a dedicated button on the remote or through a dedicated icon in the user interface.

Only LG and Sony made the cut this time, each with a few TVs:


LG 2016 4K UHD TVs with webOS 3.0
UH6300 series | UH6500 series | UH7500 series | UH8500 series | UH9500 series | G6 series
TV has Instant On feature so your TV wakes and apps are ready to use right away. The TV Resume feature means that when Netflix was the last used app, the TV comes right back to Netflix when turned back on again. Apps start quickly and the WebOS interface enables easy navigation and switching between apps and inputs.

Sony
2016 Android 4K UHD TVs
X85D series | X93D series | X94D series

TV has Instant On feature so your TV wakes and apps are ready to use right away. In addition, TV turns on and launches Netflix with one press of the Netflix button on remote. The TV Resume feature means that when Netflix was the last used app, the TV comes right back to Netflix when turned back on again. Apps launch quickly and return where you left off. Android TV interface enables easy navigation and switching between apps and inputs.

I'm thoroughly NOT surprised that Samsung isn't on this list.

Samsung televisions are essentially crap. Milled out and pumped out LCD panels that use cheap ADHESIVE as the bonding solution to hold the panels together. I won't ever look FIRST to a Samsung for a TV or a fridge. In fact, Samsung has gotten much worse and product line is made ghetto style all too often.

Sony LCDs/LEDs are rating the LONGEST LASTING year after year after year and LG is right with them.
