How to Stream IPTV on VIZIO Smart TV


If you are a smart TV user, you can enjoy watching thousands of IPTV channels and VOD content from your desired providers by installing an IPTV player. But, for Vizio TVs, it is a different story. VIZIO Smart TVs are of three types: VIZIO SmartCast TVVIA (VIZIO Internet Apps), and VIA Plus. In this article, you can learn the possible ways to access IPTV on the mentioned VIZIO Smart TV models.

On the Vizio VIA & VIA Plus models, a set of legal IPTV apps comes built-in, and you can also download your desired services from the Vizio App Store. So, you can access IPTV content only by using them. Likewise, on Vizio SmartCast TV, you can access the built-in IPTV apps. Along with that, you can also cast an IPTV player from your Android smartphone or iPhone and get IPTV access. Unfortunately, you can’t cast IPTV on VIA and VIA Plus models.

Why Connect to VPN to Stream IPTV on Vizio Smart TV?

Streaming IPTV content without a VPN exposes your original IP and makes you vulnerable to privacy breaches and cyber attacks. Meanwhile, some of the IPTV services may be geo-restricted in your country. So, it is advisable to choose and use a VPN on your device to secure your privacy and data while watching IPTV content.

Since you can find a lot of VPNs online, we recommend you sign up for NordVPN since the service offers various security features. Currently, NordVPN offers a 67% discount + 3 months free as a New Year's deal for all subscribers.
