VIZIO has announced the addition of the streaming audio service Amazon Music to its line up of apps available to millions of VIZIO smart TV users in the U.S.
The Amazon Music app allows VIZIO users to launch the app from the home screen and search and discover songs, albums, playlists, and more. Prime members have access to two million songs — all ad-free and no additional cost above their Prime membership. Listeners can also enjoy the premium subscription service, Amazon Music Unlimited, which provides access to more than 75 million songs and the latest new releases. A free ad-supported version is also available, providing users with access to a selection of top playlists and stations on Amazon Music.
“With millions of users across the country, VIZIO is an obvious choice for Amazon Music to expand our service into the homes of music fans,” says Karolina Joynathsing, director of business development for Amazon Music.
“We look forward to our customers being able to easily listen to their favorite music on VIZIO smart TVs starting today.”
By pairing a VIZIO TV with one of VIZIO’s soundbars, as well as products and systems from other manufacturers, users can set the mood with a wide variety of music options to enjoy a surround sound experience right from their living room.
“At VIZIO, we believe the TV is the centerpiece of the home entertainment experience, which is why we’ve made it a priority to add content and services that our users love,” adds Katherine Pond, vice president of business development at VIZIO.
“The addition of music services like Amazon Music, together with our award-winning Sound Bars, allows us to offer users a new way to search, discover and experience high-quality music, podcasts and more from their VIZIO smart TV.”
The Amazon Music app joins a full roster of music-related apps on VIZIO such as Pandora, VEVO, and TIDAL, as well as channels available on VIZIO’s free streaming service, WatchFree+.
