Seller Office Use

The following questions are related to managing applications in the Samsung Apps TV Seller Office.

Your Samsung Content Manager helps you manage various application development and distribution scenarios, such as permission to use partner-level privileges, removing application versions from distribution, and publishing an application in multiple countries or outside of the United States.

To request the contact information for your local Content Manager, create a "1:1 Q&A" support ticket.

Make sure you are using a TV from the model groups and the service country you defined when you registered the application in the Seller Office.

To add service countries to your application, contact your local Content Manager.

When an application is suspended or terminated, it is dropped from Samsung Apps TV:

A suspended application is no longer available on Samsung Apps TV, but TVs with the application installed can still use it. You can suspend a published application and restore it at any time through the Seller Office.

A terminated application is removed from Samsung Apps TV and uninstalled from TVs that have it. To terminate an application, you must receive approval from your local Content Manager and submit a termination request. Termination requests take 2 to 3 days to process, and terminated applications cannot be restored. After an application is terminated, it can be deleted, which removes it from your Seller Office account.

For more information on suspending and terminating applications, see Changing Application Status.
