When airtime is installed at a contracted property, each TV on the account needs to be activated. This process uniquely ties the individual television with the airtime account and creating the unique Device ID which can be used to track usage.
Upon installation the service partner will be granted access to an Airtime Activation Request Application for their mobile devices. This app is based on Google Appsheets, which can be downloaded from Android Play store or the Apple store and is compatible with both Android and iOS devices.
Previously, Airtime needed a manual intervention from the user which required a 4-digit PIN. The new version of Airtime hopefully decreases the time required in-room for each installer.
There are two methods of activation of Airtime:
- Remote – automatic enrolment (preferred method)
- On-site- activation request method
Each of the two methods above a reliant on the Airtime application being installed on the TV estate.
In some instances, this can be done remotely with a clone file, or even forcing the TV to download the app from the relevant smart store from an on-screen button. This requires all associated smart store terms and conditions to be accepted.
Method 1: Remote – automatic enrolment (preferred method)
Once the application is downloaded and ready to activate for the following TV Models you can email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a list of:
- the MAC addresses (for Samsung Tizen and Philips Android TV)
- the DeviceID (for Samsung Orsay)
- the UDID (for LG – available via the IDCAP API)
