Yahoo! Connected TV
Yahoo! User Account
You do not need to be a registered Yahoo! user to use Yahoo! Connected TV although some Yahoo! TV Apps may require login to Yahoo!
Once logged in to Yahoo! a user is not automatically logged out once the TV App is closed. You can sign in and sign out of the Yahoo! account associated with individual profiles in the Settings menu.
Non-Yahoo! Content and Service Providers
You do not need to log in to Yahoo! to use non-Yahoo! branded TV Apps.
Yahoo may make your viewing data from using the Broadcast Interactivity feature (see below) available to the manufacturer of your device.
Yahoo! Connected TV Platform
The Yahoo! Connected TV Platform automatically checks for updates.
The Yahoo! Connected TV Platform supports the Yahoo! login so some TV Apps built by Yahoo! can access password protected data associated with your Yahoo! ID, such as your Flickr photos and Yahoo! Finance portfolio.
When your connected TV contacts Yahoo! servers, it sends a unique identifier number that allows Yahoo! to distinguish between different televisions utilizing the Yahoo Connected TV Platform.
Your Yahoo! Connected TV viewing may include interactive prompts related to shows that you watch. You can vote for your favorite contestants, learn more about characters, actors, or advertised products, and see personalized information and advertising alongside your programming.
Prompts will appear briefly at the bottom of your screen when companion TV Apps or other useful information is available. Just select a prompt with your remote control to interact.
To recall previously displayed prompts or turn off this feature, follow the instructions provided by your model of Yahoo! Connected TV.
