With Netflix having made its Netflix Recommended TV program global this year, LG has noted that the recommendation has been made by Netflix for a TV brand in Australia for the very first time.

LG 4K UHD TVs Recommended By Netflix Available In OzLG has achieved the Netflix Recommended TV designation for 2016 models.

The LG smart TVs with webOS 3.0 that made the list include the: LG 4K UHD OLED G6 series, LG Super UHD 4K TVs - UH950T and UH850T series, and LG 4K UHD TVs - UH656T, UH635T and UH652T series.

Netflix has stated that the program, introduced in the US last year, was created because its members told it "they wanted smart TVs to be easier to use, provide simpler access to the things they do most, and perform better overall".

Netflix introduced new criteria in 2016, establishing faster performance thresholds for existing criteria.

LG notes that certification is based on three criteria:

- Features: TV instant on, TV resume, latest Netflix version

- Performance: Fast app launch, fast app resume

- Ease of access: Netflix button, easy Netflix icon access

"LG has continued to lead the way in making streaming services, including Netflix, easier and faster to use," Scott Mirer, Netflix vice president, Device Partner Ecosystem, commented.

"We are pleased to designate the latest LG 4K UHD TVs with webOS 3.0 as Netflix Recommended TVs, offering a superior experience for Netflix members all over the world."
