Today, VIZIO announced that Disney+ will be added to SmartCast, its smart TV platform. While VIZIO users have been able to stream Disney+ on SmartCast through Apple AirPlay 2 and Chromecast built-in, this update allows viewers to launch the app and search for Disney+ content directly from the SmartCast home screen.
With the app, viewers will be able to enjoy their favorite movies and TV shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic, along with Disney+ original series and movies. The Disney+ app is available on the SmartCast platform in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, and users in these locations can find and subscribe through the apps row on SmartCast Home or through the SmartCast Mobile app.
“At VIZIO, we are always working to provide the best home entertainment experience for our users,” said Bill Baxter, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. “We are excited to bring Disney+ onto the SmartCast platform to give viewers access to even more content to enjoy.”
VIZIO SmartCast makes It easy for users to quickly and easily find and launch content. SmartCast has a voice control, compatible with Siri, Google Assistant, and Alexa. SmartCast also includes Apple AirPlay 2 & HomeKit, along with Chromecast built-in, so users can stream, control, and share their favorite shows, movies, content, and more.
