The advantage of IPTV is it is way cheaper than popular streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, etc. IPTV players can be installed on smartphones. On the other hand, if you have a smart TV, you can install IPTV apps to stream IPTV content. Coming to Vizio smart TV, there are two types of models it offers. The first one is the SmartCast TV and the second is Vizio Internet Apps.
For the SmartCast TV, you can straight-up install apps from the Google Play Store. It also supports Chromecast to cast the screen from the smartphone on TV. But if you have a Vizio Internet App model TV, you cannot use the Play Store (Note: You can sideload APK on Vizio TV and then install IPTV Smarters APK). You have access to the native Vizio App Store to download a limited number of apps.
