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).
