    VUDU coming to Vizio TVs


    "VIZIO reveals dynamic new content partners for VIZIO Internet apps connected HDTV feature.(PRNewsFoto/VIZIO, Inc.)


    - New content and service providers announced, including eBay(R), Facebook(R), Radiotime(R), Revision 3(R), Rallypoint Sports(R), Showtime(R), Twitter(R) and Vudu(R).

    - VIZIO Internet Apps (VIA(TM)) Connected HDTVs deliver unprecedented choice and easy to access Internet-based content streamed directly to VIZIO HDTVs.

    - VIZIO's VIA(TM) Connected HDTVs found in VIZIO's High Performance XVT series (Extreme VIZIO Technology) include built-in wireless (802.11n dual-band) and wired networking, a Bluetooth universal remote control with sliding QWERTY keyboard, and interactive setup video to guide users step-by-step to easily connect their HDTV.

    IRVINE, Calif., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- VIZIO, America's #1 HDTV and Fastest Growing Consumer Electronics Company, revealed today a NEW expanded list of content and service partners who are designing widgets to bring high demand movies, TV, music and social networking applications this year to VIZIO Internet Apps (VIA(TM)) Connected HDTVs. VIZIO's VIA(TM) Connected HDTVs deliver the widest range of web-based content directly to the television with the push of a single button.



    VIZIO enables web-based content to be easily accessible and viewed simultaneously with any input on the HDTV and is displayed in an easy to navigate, non-intrusive menu that can be adjusted to fit around the video on your TV screen.

    "Consumers are placing high value on connected televisions that open up new content applications," said Kurt Scherf, vice president and principal analyst at Parks Associates. "Our recent research has identified a likely target of 2.5 million North American broadband households that are ready to purchase an Internet-connected TV."(1)

    VIZIO's VIA(TM) Connected HDTV feature includes integrated wireless (802.11n dual-band) and wired networking for easy connection to the Internet right out of the box. VIZIO HDTVs enabled with this platform guide the user through a quick step-by-step set up process that runs as soon as the TV is turned on for the first time. Users simply select their wireless network from a list of all available networks (automatically discovered) to connect their VIZIO HDTV to the Internet. They also have the option to plug in an Ethernet cable directly to the VIZIO HDTV to access the Internet.

    VIA(TM) Connected HDTVs also come with a customized universal remote control with built-in QWERTY keyboard that slides open to allow users to easily type keywords for their favorite movies, TV shows, music, chat, or simply enter logins and passwords for their favorite services. Equipped with Bluetooth, the customized remote also provides users with the added convenience of being able to type without having to point the remote at the TV. In addition, the customized universal remote has been designed with traditional infrared capabilities to allow consumers to control all of their existing CE devices connected to the television, such as DVD and Blu-ray players, VCRs, audio devices, cable and satellite set-top boxes, DVRs, and other AV equipment.

    "We are excited by the support of the additional content and service providers being announced today. The overwhelming response so far from the biggest brands in this space validates our unique approach in addressing the growing consumer demand for online content and services on the biggest screen in the home," said Matthew McRae, Vice President of Products at VIZIO. "Understanding that consumers still expect the TV to remain first and foremost the entertainment centerpiece of the home, we've gone to great lengths to ensure that the VIA platform integrates seamlessly with the existing TV experience and makes web-based content as easily discoverable as flipping the channel."

    VIZIO's VIA(TM) Connected HDTV feature incorporates multiple technologies and software services to enable a unique experience that hides all of the complexity from viewers. One such technology is the Yahoo! Widget Engine, which provides an open platform that allows a new class of Internet services, called TV Widgets, to thrive in the TV environment. VIZIO's platform also includes support for the Adobe(R) Flash(R) Platform for the Digital Home, an optimized implementation of Flash technology that enables developers and content providers to deliver HD video, rich applications and other Web content to Internet-connected televisions, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players and other devices in the digital home.

    Previously, VIZIO announced a number of popular content and service providers who are building VIZIO Internet Apps (VIA(TM)) including: Accedo Broadband(R), Amazon Video On Demand(R), Blockbuster On Demand(R), Flickr(R), Netflix(R), Pandora(R) and Rhapsody(R).

    Now VIZIO is pleased to reveal additional leading content and service providers also working to bring their compelling entertainment, social networking, information and interactive services to the platform this year, including:

    eBay ( - Get real-time updates, place bids, and monitor your favorite items with the eBay TV Widget. Search, view photos, and compare prices of products with the press of your remote - you won't miss a buying or selling opportunity with the eBay TV Widget.

    Facebook ( - Facebook gives everyone the power to connect and share with their friends. Over 200 Million people use Facebook every month and Facebook Connect brings this audience into your TV, making it even more social.

    Radiotime ( - makes it easy for listeners find local, national, or global radio programming airing on more than 60,000 AM/FM and Internet radio stations in 140 countries broadcasting in 55 languages.

    Revision 3 ( - The home of Internet Television, Revision3 creates content for passionate communities who want to watch shows that entertain, educate and help to expand their life experiences.

    Rallypoint Sports ( - Rallypoint delivers fantasy sports, social networking, and e-commerce services to consumers through Internet-connected HDTVs and other devices. Launched in 2009, Rallycast(SM) Fantasy Sports services give consumers unprecedented ability to personalize their HDTV sports viewing experience with real-time fantasy league stats - and stay connected with their friends and competitors - using just their remote control.

    Showtime ( - The Showtime TV Widget takes consumers inside Showtime with video extras, trailers, trivia, and select sample episodes of hit series such as Dexter and Weeds.

    Twitter ( - Twitter is a communication network valued for its real-time capability in connecting people to breaking news, shared events and everyday conversation. People share short posts via SMS, Web, 3rd party applications, and now through the TV.

    Vudu ( - VUDU is a leading digital entertainment service that delivers tens of thousands of movies and more, including:

    Largest HD collection available anywhere.
    Superior AV quality, including 5.1 surround sound.
    HDX, VUDU's exclusive ultra-high quality HD format.
    Movies available same day as DVD.
    Popular Internet services like Pandora.
    "Due to its rising brand recognition among consumers, VIZIO again took the lead in U.S. FLAT PANEL-TV shipments in the first quarter of 2009," said Riddhi Patel, principal analyst, television, for the market research firm iSuppli Corp., El Segundo, Calif. "iSuppli expects the U.S. Flat panel TV market to reach 32 million units of which LCD TVs will account for 28 million units in 2009. Shipments of LCD-TVs with full-HD resolution - i.e. 1080p - will account for nearly half the market during the year. Sets that provide superior image quality and lower energy consumption by employing 120Hz refresh rates and LED backlighting and connectivity with Internet are expected to be in strong demand as consumers become more discerning in their LCD-TV choices."

    The VIA(TM) Connected HDTV feature will be integrated into VIZIO XVT series HDTVs shipping to retailers nationwide this Fall, with apps from these content and services partners and more available at launch or shortly thereafter through simple updates delivered over the HDTV's Internet connection. Demonstrations of the platform will be held for key business partners, analysts and press in New York during private press meetings 6/23-24, at the Text100 press event 6/23 and during PEPCOM's Digital Experience press event 6/24. Interested content and service partners should contact VIZIO at or call (949) 428-2525 ext. 2554. Reporters and analysts should speak with press contacts listed below.

    Yes very exciting announcement.....


      Re: VUDU coming to Vizio TVs

      Any idea when these hit stores?


        Re: VUDU coming to Vizio TVs

        Is vudu switching to streaming only for the Visio television? I saw no mention of a hard drive on these televisions.


          Re: VUDU coming to Vizio TVs

          You would think they would just throw in a little 2.5 inch drive or an even smaller 1.8 inch hard drive.
