Today , The Apple TV App made its way to Vizio SmartCast TVs from 2016 and later. Absent until now, the streaming service lets users stream tv shows and movies from Apple TV+, a user’s iTunes library, or Apple TV channels. The app is available starting today if your TV is news enough.

If you’ve never subscribed to Apple TV+, you can take advantage of a free three-month subscription trial. After that, Apple TV+ will cost $4.99 a month. Vizio SmartCast TV owners can use the Apple TV app to browse or rent over 100,000 movies and TV shows, many in 4K HDR.

You can also use your Vizio TV’s Apple Airplay 2 and HomeKit capabilities to stream, control, and share content directly from iPhones, iPads, and Macs to the TV.

In the Apple TV app, you can subscribe to channels like SHOWTIME, CBS All Access, Starz, and more. You can take advantage of Family Sharing to give access to those subscriptions with up to six family members.

With the Apple TV app coming to VIZIO SmartCast TVs, customers can enjoy an even broader range of exciting entertainment, including the popular and award-winning Apple TV+ service, said Mike O’Donnell, Chief Revenue Officer of VIZIO. Knowing the important role the TV has in the home, VIZIO continues to expand the entertainment available for consumers to discover. VIZIO SmartCast is also the perfect destination for content providers as the platform where millions of customers can access all of their favorite apps, channels and programming from their TV.

You’ll get access to Apple originals too, through Apple TV+. You can install the Apple TV app on your Vizio SmartCast TV today, so long as it’s from 2016 or later.
