How to Update a VIZIO Smart TV

Introduction

The operating system that your Smart TV runs on is called "firmware". New versions of Firmware may be released periodically during the life of a device. This activity is typically referred to as a Firmware Update. A Firmware Update can occur if new functionality is introduced for the device or to correct an issue the device might be experiencing. If your Smart TV is connected to the Internet, it can receive Firmware Updates whenever they are pushed to the device.

How do you get updates?

VIZIO Smart TVs receive Firmware Updates automatically. When a VIZIO Smart TV connects to the internet, information is sent from the VIZIO Smart TV to the Firmware servers. If the Firmware in the TV is up-to-date, nothing further takes place. If a Firmware Update is available for the TV, the Update is queued up and sent to the TV when the TV is powered off. VIZIO does not offer Firmware Updates upon request; you simply have to connect your VIZIO Smart TV to the internet. So long as the TV is connected to the Internet, the update will occur automatically while it is off.
