TVSeason Intents

Introduction

Season during which a series of related episodes are broadcast on TV broadcast or delivered online. These intents let users request actions for a TV season, such asking to start playback of a particular season for a show.

This document provides a quick reference to the TVSeason intents and corresponding slots. For details around how these intents are specified, see Understanding the Structure of the Built-in Intent Library.

Intent Signature

Use the intent signature as the intent name in your intent schema. This example shows a schema with the TVSeason intent:

{
    "intents": [
        {
            "intent": "AMAZON.PlaybackAction<object@TVSeason>"
        }
    ]
}

For more about the components of this signature, see Understanding the Structure of the Built-in Intent Library.

TVSeason Intents

The following table summarizes the available TVSeason intents and the set of slots that may be included. For each intent, the sections below the table show:

  • A sample utterance that would invoke the intent.
  • The JSON you include in your intent schema if you want to use the intent.
  • An example of the IntentRequest sent to your skill for the provided sample utterance, illustrating the slots that may be included. For brevity, these samples leave out the full set of properties that are normally part of a complete IntentRequest.

    Note that if your interaction model includes multiple intents with similar utterances, your results may vary from these examples.

For definitions of the slots used in these intents, see TVSeason Slots.

TVSeason Slots

The TVSeason intents can return slot values to your skill. You do not include these slots in your intent schema – they are generated automatically from the intent signature.

The following table shows the slots the TVSeason intents can return. For each slot, the table includes:

  • The slot name.
  • An example utterance for the slot.
  • The JSON that would be sent to your skill for the sample utterance.
  • If applicable, the name of the slot type used by the slot. You can see details about slot types in the Slot Type Reference.
