Differences between CloudTV and Web Development

Create for television:

 Make sure your application is responsive, maintains clear focus and is navigable with d-pad keys. See Creating Applications for TV.

Exploit video capabilities:

CloudTV excels in displaying videos in your UI. Video is separately rendered from the rest of the UI; you can't overlay elements on top.

Optimize for CPU:

We process the application in the cloud. Better CPU performance means less servers needed. 

Deal with bandwidth constraints:

We stream the UI to the client. Screen updates, animations and video need to fit within the available session bandwidth, to avoid hiccups. See Bandwidth Considerations &  Optimizing Animations for CloudTV.

Avoid embedded objects:

As CloudTV is standards compliant, don't use proprietary objects such as Flash or Java.

Forget about cross browser compatibility:

Save a lot of time, as there is no need for writing CSS hacks of browser specific CSS code (-moz-, -o-, -webkit-).
