VIZIO Featured App of the Week: LiveTraffic

LiveTraffic is a VIZIO Internet App available on your VIZIO Internet Connected TV that allows you to see traffic in your area and track your commute.

Featured VIZIO App of the Week: VUDU

VIZIO Internet Connected TV App, VUDU, is an entertainment streaming service that allows the user to stream new releases the same day it goes to DVD.  If it’s out on DVD, chances are you can watch it today on VUDU. Don’t pick from a list of last year’s hits or worry about what’s in stock, VUDU allows the user to watch movies without the hassle.

The app offers thousands of movies for rent or purchase, so instead of paying a monthly subscription, pay for exactly what you watch. What we like most about VUDU is the large selection of HD 1080p content. The Network Speed Test helps users determine the best video quality that your network will support. Consider hard wiring your TV with an Ethernet cord so that regardless of Wireless Internet Speed you can view the highest resolution. Once you begin to watch movies on VUDU in HDX, you won’t want to go back!
