The best Smart TVs of 2019 to see Netflix: models and criteria
The annual list of TVs recommended by Netflix to get the best experience possible on the streaming platform has already been announced. In the list revealed by Netflix we find several models from Samsung, Sony and Panasonic.
The new feature in the 2019 criteria is the “Always Fresh” function. This feature gives you the possibility to keep Netflix in the background even when the television is “sleeping”. As soon as you “wake up”, the platform will be ready to welcome you.
It turns out to be weird as brands like LG (and their OLED) are not on this list. Believing that it was designed in the most fair way, these are the recommendations of Netflix for its service in 2019:
- Samsung Q950R
