As part of its CES 2015 announcements, Netflix has launched a new 'Recommended TV' hardware evaluation program that will certify smart TVs which the company says offer a superior Netflix experience.

Netflix says:

This spring, Sony Electronics, LG Electronics, Sharp Electronics, VIZIO and manufacturers of Roku TVs™ are expected to be among the first smart TV set-makers to deliver models designated by Netflix to receive a ‘Netflix Recommended TV’ logo. Among other performance criteria also expected to be announced this spring, the program recognizes consumer benefits including turning the TV on instantly, faster app launch and faster resume of video playback. Though initially a US-based program, global television manufacturers will incorporate many of these features in sets sold worldwide.

Netflix says that its "Recommended TV" label will be placed on a wide variety of smart TV, in terms of sizes and price points.
