On our TV-connected apps (Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, and Xbox), existing customers should highlight the "Sign In" option to proceed.
Logging into an account on TV-connected devices by using an on-screen keyboard can be slow and easy to make typos. We are adding an Activation Link to make this easier on most platforms. When opening our app on TV Connected devices the Sign In button goes to a screen to choose between using “Use a computer/mobile” to activate on a computer or mobile device using a text or QR code, and “Sign in on this device” to use the on-screen keyboard to enter the login information.
The text code can be entered on an activation page on our website or QR the code will link to the activation process. If you are not already logged in then you will be prompted to log in and then the code can be entered. If needed, there is a “Get a New Code” button on the screen of the TV connected device.
It is important that the "Activate Your Device" screen stay up on the TV Connected device while activating it on the web page so that the device login can complete the process.
Users using social login can take advantage of this feature, and fans who want to sign on these devices with a MT password can also do so.
