VIZIO has announced the rollout of new features to its smart TV experience, SmartCast Home. The expanded functionalities allow users to access more entertainment through new apps such as CBS All Access and personalize their SmartCast Home experience via the new App Sorting feature. Users can sort and reposition their favorite apps to enable quicker access to those most commonly used. The latest iteration of SmartCast Home is rolling out via free cloud-based updates to VIZIO SmartCast 4K Ultra HD TVs and displays, as well as select HD and Full HD models.
VIZIO SmartCast Home users can now reposition their favorite and most frequented apps on the home screen. This personalization feature not only provides easier, more convenient access to preferred apps, but also enables a more streamlined home screen interface that complements users’ viewing and content preferences. To change the order of apps within the App Row at the bottom of the SmartCast Home screen, users can scroll to the end of the App Row and select the “Sort App Row” icon. From there, they will be prompted with on-screen cues that guide them through the process of highlighting and selecting various apps to customize their position.
Also new to VIZIO SmartCast Home is the CBS All Access app, which includes access to programming such as NCIS, The Young and the Restless, and Madam Secretary, as well as exclusive CBS All Access original series such as Star Trek: Discovery and The Good Fight. Users can also stream local live broadcasts. Other apps such as YouTube TV – which allows SmartCast users to watch and record live TV from more than 60 networks – Baeble and Toon Goggles among others, have also been added to the SmartCast lineup.
SmartCast also now offers dedicated TV and Movie Detail pages highlighting the selected title’s trailer and synopsis, along with cast and director credits, running time, parental ratings, critic insights, and more. The TV and Movie Detail pages will also soon allow users to browse seasons and episodes across multiple apps such as FandangoNOW and Hulu, and then view on their app of choice.
