I need recomendations for nice simple TV for Grandma

I need to purchase a TV but it needs to look really nice and be very simple to operate. Here are my requirements

1. Simple to setup and operate
2. Price is not an issue
3. I would like it to be very thin LED with very little bezel
4. It can have all of the internet ad-ons but I need to be able to bypass them easily
5. 60" - 70" is fine

Can anyone give me some good recommendations? I have not researched many TV's in the past.

Sadly I'm not seeing any that meet this easy to use item.

As the current models appear to be smart TVs the remotes bristle with buttons and fail that criteria.

But if I were to take the easy exit I'd head to Costco and see what they offer today that looks acceptable to your eyes.

Name brand TVs today are so darn good.

Yeah, check things out at brick & mortar stores including Costco & Sam's Club. Just avoid obscure brand names.

If you are setting it up for her...

...even picking a top of the line HDTV in that price range would be a cakewalk per se. You can simply choose *not* to utilize the menu choices on the HDTV that do not pertain to television viewing/DVD watching, if that's all she plans on doing with it. Channel changing is quite easy on 99% of HDTVs. (Not sure why Bob has told you they aren't simple to use in this regard??)

CNET has decent reviews if you take a look too. Here's a nice LED I saw (initially) @ Best Buy:
