No Set-top Box Needed

VIZIO today announced that customers in the US and Canada can now access the Apple TV app on SmartCast TVs to enjoy Apple TV+, Apple TV channels, new and popular movies, and personalized and curated recommendations. No set-top box is required. An over-the-air software update via Wi-Fi enables this feature on all 2020 VIZIO SmartCast TVs along with VIZIO SmartCast TVs dating back to 2016.

On the Apple TV app, VIZIO customers can enjoy Apple TV+, the first all-original global streaming service featuring Apple Originals from today’s most imaginative storytellers, including “The Morning Show,” “Defending Jacob,” “Central Park,” “Ted Lasso,” “Greyhound,” “The Banker,” “Boys State” and “Beastie Boys Story,” and kids and family entertainment such as “Helpsters,” “Ghostwriter” and “Snoopy in Space.” VIZIO SmartCast TV users can simply select the Apple TV app icon from the SmartCast Home™ screen and sign in with their Apple ID to subscribe to Apple TV+.

For a limited time, eligible VIZIO SmartCast customers in the US can sign up for Apple TV+ and receive three months free.* Customers can also subscribe to Apple TV channels, such as SHOWTIME, CBS All Access, and Starz, and watch online and offline, ad-free and on demand, directly on the Apple TV app (available may vary by market). Through Family Sharing, up to six family members can share subscriptions to Apple TV channels using their personal Apple ID and password.

Additionally, VIZIO SmartCast TV users can browse the Apple TV app to buy or rent over 100,000 movies and TV shows, including titles available in 4K HDR and with Dolby Atmos, as well as access their library of movie and TV show purchases from Apple.

“With the Apple TV app coming to VIZIO SmartCast TVs, customers can enjoy an even broader range of exciting entertainment, including the popular and award-winning Apple TV+ service.”

Mike O’Donnell, Chief Revenue Officer of VIZIO

VIZIO customers can also enjoy Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit capabilities on SmartCast TVs. With AirPlay 2, VIZIO customers can stream, control, and share their favorite content directly from their iPhone, iPad, or Mac to their VIZIO SmartCast TV. HomeKit allows customers to easily and securely control their SmartCast TV using the Home app or by asking Siri on their Apple devices.
