Vizio Adds Google TV 3.0 and New Apps to Co-Star Streaming Player

By February 5, 2013

Follow me on:

Vizio Co-Star Streaming Player owners will be receiving an update to Google TV 3.0, as well as some additional apps not previously available.

The new Google TV 3.0 updates will include a Prime Time Mini-Guide (an improved, more visual, programming browser formerly called Movies and TV), Voice Search (a remote app for compatible Android devices that enables voice control of Google TV search functions), and YouTube Pairing (allows you organize YouTube videos on either an Android or iPhone and synch your list with the Vizio Co-Star.

Also, you will finally be able to use M-GO button on the Vizio Co-Star remote as that app will become active. M-GO is a new pay-per-view digital video rental service that provides an easy navigation interface.

Additional updates include the addition of Vudu, as well as a new interface for Amazon Instant Video.

These (and more) updates will be available for download in the coming weeks. If you own a Vizio Co-Star, to find out if the updates are available, just go the System Settings Menu and click on System Update.

For more on the Vizio Co-Star, read my previous review.

According to ESPN’s FAQs. – in addition to a PC, ESPN 3 is available via Xbox Live if you are a Gold Level member and on smartphones and tablets via the Watch ESPN App – through selected cell phone providers. For more details, you should contact ESPN.
