Transitioning pages to work well on a TV is a lot of work.

Why? The remote is a horrible input device. For: Text, navigation.

Reading text from across the room.

But, wait these are the same problems on mobile! Try simply updating your mobile site for the tv.

  • scale the page using CSS transforms?
  • or, just the text.
  • can’t rely on CSS tv media type
  • use media queries. @media(max-width:600px)
  • for TV: width 1920 height 1080

Or 1280 and 720 then font 2.5em. This covers most TVs.
