Vizio owners can use the SmartCast platform to search for any title in Tubi’s catalog or launch the Tubi app directly.

“Tubi shares Vizio’s mission to bring consumers more of the entertainment they love, all in one place,” said Tubi CEO Farhad Massoudi in a statement. “We’re delighted to be a part of the Vizio SmartCast ecosystem to make our library easily available to Vizio customers.”
