Vestel adds TikTok to smart TVs

Europe’s largest TV manufacturer Vestel has announced the launch of TikTok across its range of Smart TVs.

The app, which is already available on all Vestel-designed Android Smart TV ranges for brands in the UK, Germany and France, will roll out for Vestel Linux-based Smart TVs. 

The rollout started at the end of January, with the app set to launch on Vestel 2021 UHD TV ranges in early February, and on Vestel 2020 UHD TVs by the end of March.

While the app is best for viewers with TikTok profiles, the app can be used without signing in where it will present a range of family-friendly trending clips. 

TikTok will be pre-installed for all future Vestel Linux-based Smart TVs. Current 2021 TVs will see the app appear after restarting their TVs. Android TV-powered Vestel customers can find the app in the Google Play store.

Barış Altınkaya, Vestel vice president of marketing and product management, said: “At Vestel, we are committed to keeping Smart TVs at the forefront of the entertainment experience. With the addition of TikTok to our Smart TV ranges, customers will now be able to access all the latest user-generated content from TikTok just as easily as TV series from the most popular streaming apps. 

“The TikTok for TV app offers a family-friendly “big screen” viewing experience, and in the best possible audio-visual quality, enabling more people to enjoy TikTok together from the comfort of their sofas.”
