Today, Vizio and Movies Anywhere announced the addition of the Movies Anywhere app to the Vizio SmartCast platform.
Movies Anywhere allows users to keep their digital movie collections from Sony Pictures Entertainment, Universal Pictures (including DreamWorks and Illumination Entertainment), The Walt Disney Studios (including Disney, Pixar, Twentieth Century Studios, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm), and Warner Bros. Entertainment together in one place.
The app syncs movie collections across digital accounts – Apple TV, Prime Video, Vudu/Walmart, Xfinity, Google Play/YouTube, Microsoft Movies & TV, FandangoNOW and Verizon Fios TV and now makes that collection available on Vizio SmartCast TVs.
“Adding MOVIES ANYWHERE to VIZIO SmartCast TVs is another way we’re providing more entertainment choices and greater convenience to our users,” said Mike O’Donnell, SVP of Platform Business “Just as SmartCast Home™ gives the user a central portal to online content options, MOVIES ANYWHERE brings the user’s movie library together in one place. It’s a perfect match that makes it even easier for our users to bring the theater experience home by streaming their favorite content in up to 4K HDR & Dolby Atmos.”
“We are excited to launch on VIZIO SmartCast TVs,” said Karin Gilford, General Manager, MOVIES ANYWHERE. “Now VIZIO SmartCast users will be able to bring their digital movie collections together in one easily accessible place, and our users will have yet another way to enjoy the movies they love most.”
Vizio SmartCast also provides fast and easy access to on-screen apps like Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, Prime Video, YouTube TV, and more, along with over 70 free streaming channels across all genres. With AirPlay and Chromecast supports, viewers can stream from their phone, laptop, or tablet right to their TV.
