Since this was my first Smart TV app project, I tried to identify the key design and interaction principles for a Smart TV application.
Problem to solve: Making show discovery easy and interactive
Goals: Create a seamless experience for the user
For who: 16-65 years old TV viewers
My research involved looking at TV manufacturers guidelines, and reading articles and presentations about those screen formats. I decided then to create two design directions based on navigation patterns (horizontal and vertical).
This is the design direction 1, with the horizontal navigation, design details with this option was to keep Cmore brand guidelines.
