Built-in Google Cast comes to Vizio's more affordable TVs

Not content to restrict cool features to the ultra high-end, Vizio has announced that it is bringing Google Cast to two of its lower-cost TV lineups. Rolling out to retailers soon, the new M-Series and E-Series lineups will pack Vizio's SmartCast, which is powered by the same Google Cast technology behind Chromecast.

With Google Cast built into the sets, owners can easily cast content from their phones or tablets to the TV without any extra equipment. As a bonus, the M-Series will pack the same 6-inch Android-powered remote that debuted with the higher-priced P-Series in late march.

Both the M-Series and E-Series look to impress from a picture standpoint as well. Both options pack 4K support, making the option even more affordable. Meanwhile, the M-Series also carries HDR support for even more definition.

The 4K M-Series models start at $850 for a 50-inch TV and go up from there, while the E-Series starts at $470 for the 43-inch 4K model.
