How to Add Apps to Vizio Blu-ray Player

By Daniel Hatter

Vizio Internet Apps (VIA) is an interface included with some models of Vizio HDTV and Blu-ray player. When the Vizio HDTV or Blu-ray player is connected to the Internet, the VIA interface allows users to access multimedia apps for video streaming, news, and music. Several apps come pre-installed, and you have the ability to add new apps.

Step 1

Turn on your Vizio Blu-ray player and the TV. Press the “VIA” button on the Blu-ray player’s remote control. A toolbar will open on the bottom of the screen.

Step 2

Press the left or right arrow buttons on the remote to scroll through the list of pre-installed apps. Select “Widget Gallery” and press the “OK” button on your remote.

Step 3

Scroll through the list of available apps and click on the one you would like to add to the VIA interface. Select the “Add Widget to My Profile” button and press “OK” to add it.
