Fire TV support

Smart Instream SDK is compatible with Fire TV devices as long as they run on a Fire OS version based on Android 5.0 (API level 21) or higher.

This page presents the limitations and some info on how to get started with this platform.

  1. Limitations
  2. Getting started


The Smart Instream SDK behaves identically on regular Android devices and on Fire TV devices, except for the following features:

  • Ads are not skippable: skip offset (from the VAST response or from the SVSAdConfigurationPublisherOptions) will be ignored on Fire TV and all ads will be played until the end.
  • Clickthrough is not supported: ads are not clickable on Fire TV and click URL from the VAST response will be ignored.

Note that you don't need to create specific insertions for TV devices. Compatibility is ensured between Web, In-app and OTT TV. The same insertion can be used for all available platforms.

Getting started

Please note: There is no GooglePlay Services on Fire TV. Therefore, do not take in account any use of those services in the getting started or integration pages. Appart from that, every other steps of the integration are identical, APIs are the same, etc...

You will find more information about the integration in the Android section of this documentation.
