Almost six years after Hisense’s first VIDAA Operating System launched, the latest version, VIDAA 4, is here and ready to transform the home entertainment experience with a faster interface, as well as more apps and handy features to make life easier.
Since its first release, over 20 million people around the globe have been using Hisense’s VIDAA OS to enhance their entertainment experience.
Faster, smarter and sleeker
VIDAA 4 comes with an entire redesign that sees vast improvements across the board, allowing viewers to access content quicker than ever before. A big focus was continuing to improve the overall speed of the OS. VIDAA 4 is now even more responsive than ever before, which means the touch of a button results in an almost instantaneous result, regardless of whether you’re launching Netflix or any of the built-in VIDAA apps.
More local and international entertainment apps
VIDAA 4 is going local, with the addition of more localised Australian content apps, such as Stan and much more. There’s also the big players like Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, and Freeview Plus also available as standard on VIDAA 4. Viewers will have access to thousands upon thousands of hours of content, TV shows and movies.
Aside from the fantastic amount of entertainment apps available, VIDAA 4 will see Hisense’s partnership with the world’s leading digital art community, DeviantArt, offer users access to over 370 million pieces of original artwork online. Users can explore artwork via multiple categories and pick and choose images to save or set as the TV’s background.
Founded in 2000, DeviantArt has over 48 million members worldwide and now VIDAA Art will offer Hisense TV owners the opportunity to view hundreds upon thousands of original artworks from the comfort of home, free of charge.
Create your own account, upload and curate your very own gallery of images and display them on the big screen.
VIDAA 4 arrives with more content provider platforms pre-integrated to allow for maximum enjoyment, with the star of the show here being Tubi, the ad-supported video-on-demand service. Tubi is also in charge of sports streaming service, fuboTV, which is one of the few providers that offers streaming access to sports in 4K. YouTube Music is another great new feature that Hisense TV owners can also get excited about. But the one that’s causing the most excitement is the addition of Amazon Prime. It’s chock-full of all the best TV shows coming out of the US and it’s guaranteed to be a total game-changer for entertainment addicts.
VIDAA 4 will also offer users free access to the best advertising-supported content from around the web. The platform is designed for optimum user experience and seamless integration with the TV. VIDAA Free will be accessible via a direct access button and will be integrated with a range of subscription-free content partners over the coming months.
