Posted by at 10:28 am on January 10, 2012

VIZIO has announced the continued expansion of its VIZIO Internet Apps platform: VIZIO Internet Apps Plus (V.I.A. Plus). V.I.A. Plus aims to bring a unified user experience to a wide range of devices that include HDTVs, Tablets, Blu-ray players, Media Players and more.

Among the V.I.A. Plus products to be included in VIZIO’s CES showcase are the 65-inch, 55-inch and 47-inch V.I.A. Plus HDTVs with Theater 3D, the VBR430 Blu-ray Player and the VAP430 Stream Player, all of which incorporate the latest Google TV experience. VIZIO will also show two V.I.A. Plus enabled tablets-the current VTAB1008 and the new 10″ VTAB3010.

“The way users consume content has changed drastically over recent years. Technology has enabled nearly every device with a screen to connect to some form of delivery platform, each with its own mechanism for searching, browsing and viewing content.” said Matthew McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO.

VIZIO is announcing new partners who are collaborating to bring their content and services to the V.I.A. Platform, including:

  • iHeart Radio – iHeartRadio, Clear Channel’s digital radio service, brings users a customizable digital listening experience with more than 800 of the nation’s most popular live broadcast and digital-only radio stations from 150 cities.
  • The Wall Street Journal – WSJ Live from The Wall Street Journal offers up to four total hours of live video programming each business day from across The Wall Street Journal Digital Network, including the Journal, Dow Jone Newswires, Barron’s, MarketWatch, SmartMoney and AllThingsD.com.
  • M-GO™ video-on-demand – M-GO from Technicolor is a next-generation app that combines all of your media including movies, music, apps, live TV, and more. M-GO will come pre-loaded on VIZIO HDTVs and Blu-ray Players with VIZIO Internet Apps or VIZIO Internet Apps Plus.

Navigating V.I.A. Plus is simple and intuitive, using the QWERTY keypad and integrated touchpad that’s built into the premium Bluetooth remote control included with every V.I.A. Plus product. Users need no technical know-how to get their new devices online, thanks to the advanced wireless Internet access and simplified onscreen setup.

The products that include V.I.A.plus will be released starting later in 2012.
