  • ean: The European Article Number (EAN) is a barcode standard, a 12- or 13-digit product identification code. Each EAN uniquely identifies the product, manufacturer, and its attributes. See What are UPCs, EANs, ISBNs. and ASINs? for more details.

An image to represent the TV or movie content. Images should be in JPG or PNG format (JPG preferred). Use a 16:9 aspect ratio, with dimensions at least 853px wide x 480px high for TV shows/seasons/episodes. Larger sizes are better; we will scale as needed.

ID

An identifier string for a work. This value must be at least one character long and must be unique among all other IDs in your catalog. Two works with the same ID will cause your catalog to be rejected by the ingestion system. Devise an ID scheme and use it unfailingly to avoid duplicate IDs. For instance, you could use your Partner ID + the work type + a long identifier such as a GUID, for an ID such as AmazonStudios_ Movie_01152ce2-de7e-44c1-9736-e8f3b15a1ddf. Any scheme that assures unique IDs within your catalog is valid.

When you update an existing catalog, the IDs for your works should not change. If an ID disappears from your catalog, we assume that work is no longer available on your service and remove it from our index.

TvSpecial

Televised events that don't belong to the traditional show-season-episode television hierarchy.

A TvSpecial can be associated with a TvShow (though not a TvSeason) or it can be a standalone event. Some other examples are awards programs, televised concerts, and retrospectives.

WindowEnd

The date and time after which the work will no longer be available under a particular offer. Each offer can have only one WindowEnd. Using WindowStart and WindowEnd, you can declare an offer to be available only for a specific window of time. After the time specified by WindowEnd, the offer is no longer presented to the viewer. If all offers have expired, the work itself is not shown to the viewer.

WindowStart and WindowEnd can be used together or separately to control a work's availablility under an offer.

  • WindowStart only: The work is available indefinitely from that time forward unless it is removed from the catalog.
  • WindowEnd only: The work is available immediately, but only until that time.
  • WindowStart + WindowsEnd: The work is available only in that window of time.
  • Neither WindowStart nor WindowEnd: The work is immediately available and always will be unless it is removed from the catalog.
