Vizio has added the Facebook Watch app to its SmartCast TV interface in Canada and the U.S., affording customers the ability to quickly and easily access Facebook Watch content and Facebook videos on the big screen.
The Facebook Watch TV app offers a personalized TV experience tailored to each users’ interests and social connections. SmartCast users can discover videos across Facebook for whatever they’re into, including live events, shows, sports, gaming, news, or music videos.
“Bringing Facebook Watch to SmartCast furthers our mission to provide Vizio customers with direct-to-device access to all of their favourite apps and channels in one place,” says Mike O’Donnell, Chief Revenue Officer of Vizio. “The Facebook Watch TV app helps connect audiences with content that matches their interests, all from the Vizio SmartCast home screen.”
Vizio SmartCast TV users can select the Facebook Watch app icon from the SmartCast Home screen and follow a prompt for a one-time Facebook login. Once logged in, they can enjoy and discover new content, including Facebook originals like Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith, Returning the Favor with Mike Rowe, and STEVE with Steve Harvey. Other content includes live gaming streams and previously recorded videos, music videos, and personal videos you have saved, shared, or uploaded to the social media site.
