The company's D-Series Smart TV platform now includes the Google Play app.

VIZIO has announced the launch of Google Play Movies & TV on its lineup of VIZIO Internet Apps Plus Smart TVs in the US and Canada, including the D-Series Full-Array LED displays. The VIZIO Internet Apps Plus platform uses the TV's built-in Wi-Fi, and also offers access to other popular apps like Netflix, YouTube, and more.

"An intuitive and well-rounded smart TV experience continues to be at the core of VIZIO's mission to provide consumers with expansive and seamless solutions for consumers to enjoy their favorite shows and movies," said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. "We're excited to announce that Google Play Movies & TV is now available through the VIZIO Internet Apps Plus smart TV platform. Thanks to Google Play's expansive library of movies and TV shows, consumers can now unlock more content than ever before."

With the Google Play Movies & TV app, D-Series customers can buy or rent tens of thousands of new release movies and next day TV shows right through the display's smart TV interface. The D-Series ranges in size from 24-inches to 70-inches and includes HD and 4K Ultra HD models with support for Ultra HD Blu-ray players and 4K streaming content. Likewise, select units use full array LED backlighting with up to 12 Active LED Zones for improved contrast and light uniformity over traditional edge-lit panels. In addition, the TVs feature Clear Action 180 with 120Hz effective refresh rate for enhanced detail in quick moving scenes. 

The 2017 VIZIO D-Series with the VIZIO Internet Apps Plus smart TV platform is now available for purchase through VIZIO.com, Walmart, Sam's Club, Target, and Best Buy.
