The Apple TV App will now be available on Vizio SmartCast TVs to customers in the US and Canada, Vizio said in an announcement recently. Using the App, you will be able to access your movie and TV shows library including both rentals and purchases. If you have an Apple TV Plus subscription, then you can also stream Apple’s original content. Moreover, a three-month free trial of Apple TV Plus will also be offered to Vizio TV owners, which normally costs $4.99 per month, only if they are new to the service. This offer expires on October 16th.
The App also offers add-on subscriptions, Apple TV Channels, for other premium services like CBS All Access, Cinemax, Showtime, Starz, and more. You can stream content from your Apple TV Channels inside the Apple TV app. This prevents you from bouncing between several different video apps.
If you own a Vizio TV, you must’ve already seen the Apple TV App appear on the SmartCast Home screen. All you need to do is enter your Apple ID account credentials to use the App on your TV.
Before rolling out Apple TV App to Vizio, the latter had already rolled out AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support to SmartCast TVs. Meanwhile, LG is still trying to add AirPlay 2 and HomeKit to 2018-model TV sets by the end of this year.
