Today VIZIO announced that it now has more than 300 live channels streaming for free on its free VIZIO WatchFree+ streaming service. The service also has over 15,000 on-demand titles and it continues to grow.
VIZIO WatchFree+ is available exclusively on VIZIO smart TVs. VIZIO joins a growing number of TV manufacturers using free ad-supported content to sell their TVs. Samsung, TCL, and others have launched their own streaming services to grow TV sales.
“WatchFree+ has solidified its position as the premium, free streaming destination for VIZIO households, thanks to our ever-expanding content offering, major studio and network partnerships, and enhanced user experience,” said Katherine Pond, group vice president of platform content & partnerships. “With these latest programming additions and product updates, WatchFree+ continues to deliver an entertainment experience that consumers love.”
The two new channels that put VIZIO over 300 live channels are:
- Comedy Club (ch. 950) delivers the best in stand-up comedy, documentaries, and shows featuring comedic giants like Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, Lewis Black, and more.
- Valor (ch. 604) is coming in February and features military films, TV series, and documentaries, highlighting the commitment of America’s military services.
VIZIO also reached a deal recently with Warner Bros. Discovery and Lionsgate that saw many new channels and on-demand titles join the service.
