YouTube App on Vizio Smart TVs

In October 2017, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Vizio, Inc. for allegedly deceptively marketing its Smart TVs as being capable of streaming videos through the YouTube app directly from the televisions when, according to the complaint, YouTube stopped functioning on Vizio’s Smart TVs that communicate and send content to televisions using an older flash-based application programming interface (API) in June 2017. (According to the complaint, the YouTube app still functions on Smart TVs with the newer HTML5-based API systems.) (Brenner et al v. Vizio, Inc., Case No. 17-cv-5897, W. D. WA.)
