Given the huge proliferation of streaming-enabled TVs, DVD players and other streaming devices, clearly Netflix isn’t happy with the wide variation in user experiences that consumers have with their service and are providing a certification program to promote the ones that it thinks are up to their standards.

In addition to LG, other TV makers like Sony, Sharp, VIZIO and Roku are expected to deliver Netflix-certified TV sets this spring.
