One of the most prominent updates for smart televisions came last year with the “Vizio SmartCast TV Platform”. After considerable delays regarding an updated operating system, multiple streaming services were implemented into the VSCTV Platform. This included Amazon, Hulu, Netflix and Vudu. Individuals wanting to engage with the Disney Plus streaming platform couldn’t download this application to their Vizio TVs. Consumers were required to use Airplay 2 or Chromecast, with that being no longer needed. LeEco, the Chinese Company that operates the Vizio TV brand confirmed that they’d be adding Disney+ in the coming weeks.
This update will be available to consumers with smart televisions from 2016 to 2020. Individuals wanting to download the application must be located in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia or the Netherlands. The Chief Technology Officer with Vizio was questioned on this announcement. Bill Baxter stated during the press release they’ve been excited to bring Disney+ for a prolonged time, allowing our viewers to experience entertaining content from one of the most prominent studios in Hollywood.
It should be noted that the Vizio TV Platform is one of the latest to provide access to Disney Plus. The Disney Corporation already created multiple agreements with other Smart TV Manufacturers. That includes Amazon, Android, Apple, Samsung and Roku. Those wanting to download this application onto their Vizio TVs will receive thousands of films from the Disney Corporation. This extends to additional content surrounding Star Wars, Fox Studios and the Marvel Universe. Individuals can enjoy movies like the Avengers, the Lion King, Aladdin, the Simpson, Boys Meets World or Radio Free Rosco. Most of the content provided is intended for younger audiences, which has been the norm with Disney for more than several decades.

One of the upcoming television series being released to Disney Plus surrounds “The Beauty and The Beast”. It’ll be based around the characters played by Joshua Gad and Luke Evans in the 2017 film from Disney. Limited details regarding this production are available, with it only being known that Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kits from “One Upon a Time” are creating this series. It’s slated to be released by 2021 as a six-part weekly episodic event.
