Samsung Advertisement service (Samsung AdHub) is now available in Mainland China, after its launch in 28 November 2013.
Developers are invited to have advertisements in their China TV Apps through www.samsungadhub.com.cn.
(※ For the other global countries except china, you need to use Samsung AdHub global website(www.samsungadhub.com).
For advertising, you need to download TV SDK at first (http://www.samsungdforum.com/Devtools/SdkDownload).
And Technical Guideline and Ad Library(Advertisement service API) for China can be downloaded through
(http://www.samsungdforum.com/SamsungDForum/ForumDashBoard/fc9db838bc1a1dd3) , but you need to choose the 'Ad Library for China' among the files.
Because of Mainland China regulation, Samsung AdHub run separate platform in china, which is 'Samsung AdHub China'
As for all advertisement support, such as issuing Ad Inventory ID and registering payment information, you need to use 'Samsung AdHub China' website(www.samsungadhub.com.cn) instead of 'Samsung AdHub' Global website(www.samsungadhub.com).

New Development Guide has been released.
New User Interfaces of Development Guide
New Development Guide has been released. In the new version of Development Guide for Samsung SmartTV SDK,we have improved usability and put more focus on the purpose of development.
The side menu of Development Guide has been changed into tree menu.We have also simplified the filter section in side menu to make it easier and more intuitive.Additionally, selecting some items in the side menu of Development Guide no longer reloads the whole page. Currently,the requested content appears right away in the main area of Development Guide.
The side menu of Development Guide has been reorganized as tree menu to make it more accessible.
The layout of the contents section has been changed to make it more readable.
We have added new content filters and moved them to the top of side menu section.
Category by Subject
Samsung SmartTV Development Guide contains many documents which deal with different aspects of developing apps for Samsung SmartTV. All of those documents are now organized into appropriate categories to improve usability and help users find all relevant information on any topic. For instance, the Multimedia category contains all information about playing audio, playing video and creating a streaming application on Samsung SmartTV organized in appropriate sections. This way you can easily find all possible methods of controlling media contents on SmartTV platform in one place. All documents are also categorized by respective Samsung SmartTV SDK version and rearranged into appropriate categories.
New Categorized API Reference
We have also reorganized all API references. Previously the APIs were classified by supported Samsung SmartTV models. Currently the APIs have been divided into appropriate categories depending on their functionality. This helps you understand the purpose of each API and find all available functions to implement some feature. All APIs of Samsung SmartTV SDK have been illustrated with some usage examples to help you use them in your own application. In addition, we have resolved all problems with Samsung SmartTV SDK, so all published APIs are safe and reliable to use in your Samsung SmartTV apps
