VIZIO continues to bring new channels to WatchFree as well, and recently launched an exclusive channel, Choppertown, which is now available. Of course, because they are free you have to put up with commercials.

In addition to free content, VIZIO SmartCast TV provides convenient access to on-screen apps like Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, Prime Video, YouTube, NBC, CBS All Access, YouTubeTV and others. It also offers access to endless entertainment thanks to support for Apple AirPlay 2 and Chromecast built-in, allowing viewers to stream, control, and share content from their phone, tablet, or laptop directly to the big screen. VIZIO is continuously enhancing the platform with new features and content that automatically update, so users have endless entertainment options, all while staying healthy and safe in their home.

The new wave of programming comes at a time when TV usage is surging. VIZIO’s internal measurement of SmartCast TV’s free ad supported apps and streaming TV is reporting a 59% increase in viewing sessions over the last three weeks of March 2020 and viewing continues to climb.
