Today Vizio added 30 new free streaming TV channels to all VIZIO SmartCast TVs. The new lineup includes news and lifestyle content from USA Today and CBC News, Sports from USA Today Sportswire and the Fubo Sports Network along with and entertainment news from TMZ and Hollywire.  VIZIO is also expanding upon do it yourself channels to inspire culinary fun from chef’s creations on Hungry and Food52 or learn from top artists on The Design Network. There’s something for everyone, with thought-provoking Sci-Fi content on Dust, documentaries on Magellan TVNow and Docuramacult classics on CONtv, and much more. 

The free streaming channels can be found under a “Free Channels” row on the SmartCast Home screen and complement VIZIO’s WatchFree™ service, powered by Pluto, which features over 150+ free streaming TV channels of news, movies, sports and more. 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.


Effective immediately, VIZIO SmartCast users can find 30 new channels on the SmartCast Home™ TV screen. Since the channels ad-supported, there is no cost.
