The service joins other Vizio SmartCast-enabled apps such as Vudu, Crackle, Hulu, Pluto TV, iHeartRadio, FandangoNOW and Google Play Movies & TV, whose content catalogues can be searched via the Vizio SmartCast app1. Users can look for their favourite shows, movies and more across multiple apps, and then simply tap to stream from their mobile device to a Vizio SmartCast display. In addition, the VizioSmartCast app also allows users to adjust settings and control displays from any room in the home.
“The Vizio SmartCast app gives consumers instant access to an ever-expanding library of content options available through our partners,” said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, Vizio.
“We’re excited for our latest integration with Xumo which offers Vizio customers even more entertainment options from the app’s premium collection of OTT channels.”
