Starting today, Vizio will be rolling out SmartCast 3.5, the newest upgrade to its smart TVs. The update includes quicker startup and load times, faster input switching and improved remote-control responsiveness while using SmartCast.

With SmartCast 3.5, users can more easily scroll through the SmartCast platform to find their favorite content. They can also quickly jump in and out of their favorite apps including Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu and YouTube. Switching inputs from Apple AirPlay or VIZIO WatchFree and returning to SmartCast has also been made faster.

“We know consumers want to upgrade their entertainment experiences this holiday season,” said Bill Baxter, Chief Technology Officer, Vizio. “These SmartCast performance updates, paired with award-winning picture quality, rich smart home integrations and competitive holiday pricing, make Vizio SmartCast TVs the best all-in-one value purchase this holiday season.”

Vizio also has some SmartCast TVs discounted for Black Friday and Cyber Monday at retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Sam’s Club, Target and Walmart. In addition, the company is bringing Pandora onto the SmartCast platform, offering a 90-day free trial of Pandora Premium to SmartCast TV owner. Users can redeem the offer by going to VIZIO.com/Pandora.
