Vizio TVs are configured to connect to various applications. They work essentially like any smartphone, tablet or computer using apps. The application works offline and does not require a hard drive to save and store data. YouTube and other streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime are easy to install on a Vizio TV. You can configure new applications from a wireless remote control or the Vizio control panel. Connecting YouTube Vizio TV allows you to watch videos for free on your big screen. You can also buy paid content directly on YouTube. New movies and blockbuster movies are easily available in the YouTube rental library.

Adding YouTube to a Vizio TV

Adding YouTube is easy on your smart Vizio TV. Vizio uses the Yahoo Connected Store, which works in the same way as Android Play or iTunes on iOS. Locate the VIA button on your remote. This is the double arrow pointing down (not down navigation or reduced volume). Select the VIA button to open the menu and navigate to the Widgets option.

On newer models, you can also select Install Application without navigating the widget options. Otherwise, you must scroll through the widgets until you locate the YouTube app and select the Install app option from that specific menu. If you go directly to the Install Application menu, you will still need to search for available apps to locate YouTube and install the app. Once installed, you will have a widget available on the screen of your application. Just connect this to open and use YouTube. tv vizio
