I am doing some compareson between Smart TV platforms way to develop applications and I wonder if Yahoos TV applications only are available in "Full screen" mode? In other words taking up the whole screen. Samsung Smart TV have three different application layouts available, see link: http://www.samsungdforum.com/upload_files/files/guide/data/html/html_2/getting_started/intro_to_samsung_smarttv_apps.html
Full screen, Single-wide application and ticker. This specifyes how much space the application takes up on the screen so the user can for example watch tv while using the application, because the application only takes up a part of the screen.
So can your applications be designed to only take up a part of the screen or all they all shown in full screen mode?
I read this pages:
but im not sure if the video viewing mood is only for videos playing inside the application itself or also can represents the broadcast from the TV.
