Vizio has announced that the Movies Anywhere app is available on its SmartCast platform, enabling users to watch their digital movie purchases. 

Separately, the Apple TV Plus app will be coming to Vizio TVs later in the year.

The new Movies Anywhere app will let users stream movies from their Movies Anywhere digital locker and is compatible with both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. The app was previously only able to be streamed to Vizio TVs from a phone.  

Movies Anywhere enables users to sync their movie accounts across different digital retailers -- including Apple TVPrime Video, Vudu, Google Play, Microsoft Movies & TV, and FandangoNow -- including films from four of the major film studios (excluding Paramount Pictures). 

SmartCast is Vizio's smart TV operating system, which incorporates onboard apps plus streaming from Google Chromecast and Apple AirPlay 2 -- it is included on models from 2016 onward.

Meanwhile, at Apple's WWDC conference yesterday, the company announced that its TV Plus service will be coming to Vizio's SmartCast later in the year.
