Solely two producers have earned the brand thus far: Sony fashions just like the SD85 and XD85 from the Android 4K collection, and LG TVs with webOS, together with the UH8500 and UH9500. Different producers, most notably Samsung, have but to make the minimize.

Netflix says TVs carrying the label carry out higher, since they “handed a rigorous analysis course of that we established based mostly on the elements our members inform us matter most.” The Netflix button and quick access icon don’t have anything to do with velocity and the whole lot to do with Netflix self-promotion, although.
