Note that you can access a list of TVs that the Vewd App Store is already available on, to find a suitable device for testing TV store apps.

Normally, the Vewd App Store does not provide end users with any browser-like interface elements – it only shows the user's chosen applications and the catalogue of already approved and published applications. However, as a developer you can set up your particular TV, set-top-box or Vewd TV Emulator to be "paired" with your Vewd App Store Submission portal account. This gives you access to a simple URL entry application, making it possible to view and test any arbitrary web address, and the ability to launch any apps already saved in your account, even before they've been submitted for final review.

To pair a device, you will need a device ID FOR DEVELOPERS. This can be found by opening the Vewd App Store on the device and viewing the About information (found under the MENU button at the top of the interface) under the My Apps tab. If you are using the Vewd TV Emulator, simply navigate to Vewd's demonstration store at httpshttp://demo.tvstoreappstore.operavewd.com.
