Discovery+ Launches on VIZIO SmartCast TVs
The discovery+ app is now available to VIZIO SmartCast TV users. With the app’s launch, VIZIO will include a dedicated carousel, “Discover More on discovery+,” on the home screen. Some of discovery+’s most popular content will be featured on the carousel to show VIZIO SmartCast TV users what the streaming service has to offer.
A collection of holiday content is available to stream at launch.
