VIZIO SmartCast TV Adds Amazon Prime Video for Quick Access to Popular Movies and TV Episodes

VIZIO, Inc. announced today the addition of Amazon Prime Video into its all-new VIZIO SmartCast TV platform. SmartCast TV is rolling out now to all 2017 VIZIO SmartCast P-Series and M-Series Ultra HD Displays. The update will begin rolling out to additional series such as 2017 VIZIO SmartCast E-Series Ultra HD Displays later this summer.

Amazon Prime Video gives Prime Video members unlimited access to popular titles including Amazon Original Series and Movies such as Transparent, The Grand Tour and Manchester by the Sea and kids series Just Add Magic. New customers interested in trying out Prime are eligible for one free 30-day trial.

“With the recent launch of SmartCast TV, one of the things we’re most excited about is providing consumers with added entertainment options,” said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. “Amazon Prime Video brings an array of content option to the screen, all accessible via a traditional remote via the Amazon Prime Video button. We’re glad to continue to bring in-demand content and solutions to our Canadian customers.”


The addition of Amazon Prime Video to VIZIO SmartCast TV gives consumers access to even more content options with features including select 4K Ultra HD titles on compatible displays featuring VIZIO SmartCast TV. Because the app is accessible directly from the display, Amazon Prime members now can easily access movies and TV episodes without the need for a separate streaming device.

VIZIO SmartCast TV allows users to browse new shows, music and then launch content directly from their displays with the touch of a button on the new 2017 remote. Featuring the V-button, the new 2017 remote provides one-button access to the VIZIO SmartCast TV user interface, along with shortcut keys to top apps, including Amazon Prime Video. For a limited time and while supplies last, owners of eligible VIZIO models can receive the new VIZIO SmartCast remote either free or for a nominal fee by calling VIZIO Support at 855-833-3221 (some conditions apply).

The third party applications and content described herein may only be available in certain countries and languages, may require additional fees or subscription charges, and may be subject to future updates, modifications, interruption and/or discontinuation of service without notice, and VIZIO has no control over such content. 4K Ultra HD or HDR availability varies by application and may be subject to subscription fees, internet service, and device capabilities.
