Why 30 or 60fps, but never 48, 50, etc... ?

Suppose i'd like to pick a 4k samsung tv that can match 60fps, any suggestions?
Because if i read correctly their 100hz tvs are native 50 hz

50Hz is merely a PAL TV signal compatibility mode and 100Hz it's frame-interpolation. I'm not aware of any TVs released in the last decade that don't support 60Hz input/output natively. Even my first 768p super low cost LCD TV did so in 2007.

It is like watching a PAL movie, it jitters when it pans across on a monitor that is locked to 60hz lol

Fun fact, 4:3 pull down filter to match 24fps movies to 60hz signal caused that judder only in NTSC land. In PAL movies were sped up to 25fps to make it a steady 50hz, causing all movies in pall to have 4% less total running time.

With games it was the reverse, running slower in PAL land. 60fps turned into 50fps, games only running at 83% of the true speed.
