After the launch on select Samsung TVs, LG TVs, Roku, and FireTV, the Apple TV app is now rolling out to Vizio TVs from 2016 or later powered by the SmartCast platform. It will be available in the US and Canada.

- "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, Vizio.
The app supports channels meaning subscription content from partners including Showtime, Starz, and CBS All Access. In addition, Vizio TVs support Apple's AirPlay 2 and HomeKit systems.
The companies said that new customers in the US can sign up for a free three month trial to Apple TV+ after which it will renew at the standard $5 per month rate.
The Apple TV app will also launch on select Sony TVs later this year.
