Customer Question
My Vizio smart 4g tv...
My Vizio smart 4g tv has several problems sometimes there is no voice on the commercials, the football games were in a foreign language, and while I was watching a movie a ladies voice would come on and make comments about the movie. I have cable service at my house and when I checked the other TVs in the house they were not having these problems.
