TikTok on VIZIO smart TVs
June 23, 2022
VIZIO has announced that TikTok TV is now available on VIZIO smart TVs. This integration allows VIZIO users to discover videos from their favourite TikTok creators and topics directly from the VIZIO home screen — no downloads required.
In support of this launch, VIZIO will highlight TikTok TV content on the VIZIO Home Page in a dedicated carousel showcasing popular trending genres so users can more easily discover their next favourite TikTok videos.
The TikTok TV app has been specifically created for a TV home-viewing experience, allowing audiences to view the most popular videos across a huge range of categories, from gaming and comedy to food and animals. In addition, VIZIO users with a TikTok account can link their accounts to enjoy content from their ‘For You’ and ‘Following’ feeds — all on the big screen
“TikTok is a cultural phenomenon redefining the meaning of entertainment, music, and video alike. Extending this unique app off the mobile phone and onto the biggest screen in the home is an important evolution of the VIZIO TV experience,” said Katherine Pond, Vice President of Business Development at VIZIO. “The addition of the TikTok TV app invites families and friends to gather around the TV and immerse themselves in the latest viral videos, content from favourite creators, and discover new short-form videos in multiple categories.”
“We’re excited to bring TikTok to even more screens with our integration with VIZIO, offering people a new way to experience the entertainment, joy, and creativity of TikTok together at home,” added Dan Page, Head of Global Business Development, New Screens at TikTok.
