Abstract

Software receives a communication from a smart-television device. The communication includes a device identifier, which is unique, for the smart-television device and a geo-location associated with the smart-television device. The software causes the smart-television device to display a first view that includes a visual icon along with a message identifying a connected-television service. The software receives a request from a mobile device to connect to the connected-television service. The request results in transmission of a geo-position from the mobile device. Upon determining that the geo-position of the smart-television device is proximate to the geo-location of the mobile device, the software causes the mobile device to display a second view that includes the visual icon for the device identifier. The software receives a communication from the mobile device that indicates a match between the visual icons. The software causes the smart-television device to display a user identifier received from the mobile device in a third view.
