After early struggles with Disney Plus not streaming on Vizio TVs, the television maker is revealing its progress toward bringing Disney Plus to its line of SmartCast TVs. On Tuesday Vizio announced that it will be pushing out an update in "early December" to its TVs that have Chromecast built-in to allow for streaming Disney Plus. 

iOS owners who have Vizio TVs can already stream the new service on their televisions through AirPlay. Android users, however, have been left without an easy way to watch Disney Plus as AirPlay is an Apple-only feature and Vizio does not have a dedicated Disney Plus app. An app was previously promised to arrive in 2020

The new update, meanwhile, will enable streaming of Disney Plus using the Chromecast feature on TVs from as far back as 2016. 

"We want consumers to know that when they purchase a Vizio TV, it will keep its value for years to come," said Bill Baxter, Vizio's chief technology officer, in a statement. "Our team is continually improving SmartCast to ensure users have the best home entertainment experience with more ways to enjoy their favorite content."
