Vizio has announced new models in its line of 3D-capable high-definition LCD televisions, while increasing the number of titles available on its Vizio Internet Apps platform. The televisions range from 32-inch to 65-inch models, all feature built-in Wi-Fi, and utilize the company's passive "Theater 3D" technology, which it claims provides a 3D viewing experience without the nasty headaches and sore eyes we've come to expect. The entry level E-Series includes 32-, 42-, and 47-inch models, priced from $549.99 to $899.99, and are available now. The M and R Series feature increasingly improved backlighting, while also upping the number of 3D glasses included (from two to four, depending on the model). Pricing and availability for the latter two lines have yet to be announced.
All of the televisions also incorporate Vizio's Internet Apps platform, which the company is expanding in conjunction with the launch. While the usual suspects like Facebook, Netflix, Vudu, and Pandora have already been present, the Yahoo! Connected TV store is now joining the fray, opening up access to more than 180 new apps from the likes of CBS, Showtime, and QVC. Whether it will be enough to cause apps on televisions to truly take off remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: Vizio isn't leaving any bases uncovered.
