iii. When your connected TV contacts Yahoo servers, it sends a unique identifier number that allows Yahoo to distinguish between different televisions utilising 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 favourite contestants, learn more about characters, actors, or advertised products, and see personalised information and advertising alongside your programming.
i. 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.
ii. To recall previously displayed prompts or turn off this feature, use your remote control to access the TV Dock and open the Broadcast Interactivity TV App. The on/off setting can be accessed in the Profile TV App.
