When I think about how far televisions have come in my lifetime alone its pretty amazing. Growing up we didn’t own a television for many years. It wasn’t because we couldn’t afford one but we lived in the country and there was no cable there and satellite television didn’t exist. Our television, when we got one was black and white and worked with bunny ears (aka coat hanger) for antennae. It was always a treat when you got to watch a couple of minutes of television, but for the most part, the reception was horrible and the picture left a lot to be desired. I loved staying overnight at my friend’s house in town. I can remember the first time I watched MTV at my friend’s house. That was incredible.

Around the time I entered high school, my stepdad finally purchased a real color television with a REMOTE control! Believe it or not, he NEVER let us use that remote control. It stayed in a drawer, and we were forbidden to use it. When I asked why he said those advanced gadgets break and cost a lot to fix. Today that same man is nearly 80 years old and has multiple remotes for his television, but what he doesn’t have is a television anything like the one at Best Buy, the VIZIO SmartCast™ P-Series™ Ultra HD HDR Home Theater Display™, the first 4K Ultra HD display to feature High Dynamic Range with Dolby Vision, Ultra-Color Spectrum, Google Cast™ built-in, with a powerful 6” Android™ Tablet Remote included. Can you imagine what he would do with a Tablet Remote? I bet he would frame it!

This television is what I want now and since I’m an adult and can make my own purchases, I might just start saving my Best Buy gift cards to purchase it. Imagine a 6″ Android™ tablet remote that is preinstalled with the VIZIO SmartCast app, letting you browse content by genre across multiple apps all at once. This allows you to locate your entertainment with a simple swipe, tap, or voice-based command. You can browse movies, TV shows, music, and Live TV* across multiple apps all in one place. Seriously?

What you love won’t change, but how you experience it will never be the same again.


The P-Series™ features a display like no other, a High Dynamic Range with Dolby Vision content support and Ultra-Color Spectrum.  The color and clarity are like nothing you have ever experienced with extraordinary brightness, radiant contrast, and captivating color.

  • Full-Array LED backlighting and up to 128 Active LED Zones™ deliver exceptional light uniformity and deeper, richer black levels.

Worried about missing your favorite Netflix shows? Don’t.

The P-Series™ has Google Cast built-in. You can cast from thousands of Google Cast-enabled apps including Netflix. For him there are sports galore and watching it with the Clear Action™ 960 that combines a blazing 240Hz effective refresh rate achieved with backlight scanning for sharper detail in fast action scenes will entertain him for hours. Be careful, you might just start watching sports with him!

*Live TV listings compatible with IP-based set-top boxes from DirecTV® and Dish® services, with more services to be added. See vizio.com/smartcast for details.
