VIZIO SmartCast TVs Add MOVIES ANYWHERE App
VIZIO and MOVIES ANYWHERE have jointly announced the addition of the MOVIES ANYWHERE app to the VIZIO SmartCast Smart TV platform. MOVIES ANYWHERE offers a way for users to access 7,900-plus digital movies purchased across platforms and digital retailer accounts, all in a single, seamless experience.
The MOVIES ANYWHERE app brings together 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, enabling consumers to sync movie collections across digital accounts - Apple TV, Prime Video, Vudu/Walmart, Xfinity, Google Play/YouTube, Microsoft Movies & TV, FandangoNOW and Verizon Fios TV - that can be played on VIZIO SmartCast TV. Additionally, MOVIES ANYWHERE recently announced a new feature, currently in beta, called SCREEN PASS, which will allow users to share their love of movies with family and friends.
Besides MOVIES ANYWHERE, VIZIO SmartCast provides access to on-screen apps like Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, Prime Video, YouTube TV, and more, along with over 70 free streaming channels that cover a variety of genres including shows, movies, news, sports, and more. It also offers support for Apple AirPlay 2 and Chromecast built-in, allowing viewers to stream, control, and share content from their phone, tablet, or laptop directly to the big screen, VIZIO says.
