FandangoNOW Links Into Vizio's SmartCast
Los Angeles-based movie streaming service FandangoNOW, the recently launched on-demand video service from Fandango, is now included on the VIZIO SmartCast app, the two companies said this morning. Vizio's app--which runs on Vizio's various connected television products and also on iOS and Android tablets and mobile devices--also supports VUDU, Hulu, and Google Play Musics & TV. The companies said that users can rent or buy from FandangoNOW, without any need for a subscription. FandangoNOW launched in March of 2016, and came out of the acquisition of on-demand movie service M-GO in January. FandangoNOW differs from other online streaming services, as it offers up premium movies at more or less the same time as pay-per-view release dates, with per-title pricing, rather than through inclusive subscription.
