Key Features

We’ve formed a list of core features
that can be applied to most Smart TV Apps.

  • Login with QR code

    Provide added value by letting users scan QR codes on the TV screen with their cameras. The easier it is for them to get access to content, the better.

  • Content search

    Ensure ease of search by letting users find content not just by movie or TV-show name, but also by actor, genre, year, country and other helpful categories.

  • Recommendations

    To capture details about viewers and provide content based on their tastes, past viewing or purchase history.

  • Playback position remembering

    Let your users resume from where they last left off. Simply because it’s deadly annoying to search for a place where you’re at when opening up the app again.

  • Feedback feature

    We heavily rely on feedback — fact. Boost users’ experience by giving them the ability to rate content and write reviews.

  • Favorites

    Enable the ability to save movies and shows users are into. Be it a romantic drama with Ryan Gosling or a Walt Disney’s cartoon they want to add to Watchlist.

  • How much design is enough for TV App development?

    Just like with mobile, web or desktop apps, UI/UX design for a Smart TV App has to be intuitive (because we hate cluttered, confusing interfaces) and aesthetically appealing (because we judge a book by its cover). Our dedicated designers are here to help you out.
