When the content is inappropriate for an age group, your application may not be serviced on the TV.
If there are any problems after launching the app, the service may be stopped. Applications must not contain violent or pornographic content or abusive language.
This document outlines the Samsung Apps’s applications rating policy and states how applications should be rated.
If you’ve submitted your application, you will need to provide ‘Age ratings’. As you know, the rating of an application confirms that it is suitable for a certain age group. For example, a 12+ application is only suitable for those who are aged twelve and above. Samsung Apps has ‘Application rating guidelines’. Refer to the Application rating guidelines
For each content description, you should determine the appropriate rating that describes your application and provide age rating information. Your self-rating is subject to Samsung Apps’s approval. The age rating that you submit will be reviewed by content raters whether it follows Samsung Apps’s guidelines or not. Each application age rating is based on the consensus of at least three trained raters who will review the application based on Samsung Apps’s content description.
Samsung Apps TV will not allow “Banned Content”. “Banned content” refers to content as defined in Section 3 of the “Samsung Apps Certification Guide”.
If you have an industry recognized rating such as ESRB, PEGI, GRB, FSK and NJ/DEJUS for your game, you may submit it. We will then briefly review your rating before permit its use. For your reference, please examine at the chart below.
MJ/DEJUS rating certificate is not necessarily required to distribute game applications in Brazil. If an application does not have an MJ/DEJUS certificate but has an ESRB, PEGI certificate, it will be assigned the corresponding MJ/DEJUS age rating. If it does not have an age rating from any official agency, it will be provided with an 18+ rating.
In South Korea, exceptionally for the games for children under the age of 18, sellers do not need to get age rating from GRB(South Korea), because Samsung Apps has been entitled to officially determine age rating for those games instead of GRB.
However, game applications that include gambling or content not proper for children under the age of 18 will not approved by the autonomous age rating of SamsungApps.
For 18 above game applications in South Korea, you still have to get issued rating certificate from GRB.
Content over the age of 18:
The content of the game has representation of anti-social idea, religion and public morals that would be harmful to children under 18 emotionally and physically
The content and motif of the game have representation of obscenity, violence, speculation, etc. that would be harmful to children under 19 (direct and indirect graphical representation of sexuality, violence, improper language (expletives)
The content of the game has gambling spirit, existence of arousing of passion of excessive use of gaming money or dependence on one’s luck *(but game for real gaining or loss of one’s asset will be rejected.)
To distribute games for non-children in South Korea, GRB information is required when registering a game application. Before registering the games over the age of 18 on Samsung Apps in South Korea, sellers have to get issued rating certificate (including rating confirmation number) from GRB.
