Why choose FX Digital for Quality Assurance (QA)?

FX Digital has a dedicated TV app Quality Assurance (QA) Testing department. Our experienced QA team has a comprehensive on-site test lab with access to a plethora of real devices, regularly maintained to ensure our apps have up-to-date platform support. Our wide range of devices includes Smart TVs, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, Playstation and Xbox. This selection of devices ensures that we are able to test your TV application across all major platforms, ensuring your app is optimised wherever it is deployed.

We are also growing our automated testing capabilities, as automation assists our team of test engineers with carrying out more detailed testing, meaning they can dive deeper into edge cases, significantly helping in the effort to achieve excellent, bug-free software. Automation testing ensures accuracy as human error is reduced, and it allows our team to carry out more regression testing than before, meaning your TV app is rigorously tested and is more accurate than ever.

We offer QA for the TV Applications we develop and we also support businesses with their existing TV Applications by offering QA Testing support packages tailored to your individual requirements.

OTT Platform Support

FX Digital support all major TV connected devices and platforms

Our TV App QA Testing Services

Our TV App QA Testing services are extensive and rigorous, to ensure that your app is optimised and exceeds your users’ expectations.

We make full use of platform container app IDE capabilities, allowing our team to access the debug console for our devices. This means we can monitor network traffic and console logs which helps with identifying and troubleshooting issues.

  We document your requirements as user stories, which then feed directly into test scenarios. This means less deviation from your requirements.

  Your requirements form part of the automated regression test list. The user story requirements would be tested regularly to ensure that current development does not invalidate any previous work.

Automated Testing

Here at FX Digital, we have a focus on automated testing to assist our test engineers in carrying out more detailed and accurate testing across a wide range of devices. In-house, we have built testing frameworks which means that no extra code needs to be added to the software under test. By ensuring that we are testing code that’s as close to production-ready as possible, we can be much more confident in our results, as our automated testing frameworks help to ensure maximum accuracy.


When carrying out automated testing, we use Cucumber, a scripting language used to write all of our test cases. This language matches each step with code which is then executed, ensuring that any test case documentation is never out of sync with the test cases. It also allows our specialist test engineers, as well as those involved in the project who can’t read code, the opportunity to quickly and easily understand what the test case does. A major advantage of Cucumber is that it is highly self-documenting, meaning our team can quickly be made aware of any issues or failed tests which can then be rectified.

Automated Testing Device Support

We support a range of connected devices with our automated testing services, including Android (Amazon Firestick, TCL Android TV, Android Mobile), Apple (Apple TV, iOS) and Roku (Streaming Stick). Our dedicated QA team has a growing list of supported devices, and as part of a project, investigations into adding any devices which could support the testing process is carried out.

Visual Regression

A stand-out feature of our automation tool is that it’s capable of performing visual regression where it captures a screenshot of the software under test, comparing it pixel by pixel to identify any changes or issues. If the image is different, our framework has the capability to generate an image file that shows exactly where any differences occur, allowing our team to understand any issues that can then be corrected to ensure the TV app being tested continues to match the mockup designs.

Automation testing isn’t just about saving time, it’s about ensuring accuracy across the devices we test. With the in-house frameworks at FX Digital, we are able to significantly reduce human error, allowing for more detailed and accurate testing to be carried out, meaning your app is optimised no matter where it is deployed.

Rigorous End-to-End Testing

You can’t (and shouldn’t) automate everything. Our team regularly cross-references against platform submission guidelines to ensure platform-owner and end-user quality expectations are met and exceeded. We conduct extensive UX-focused exploratory testing. The User Experience is extremely important when building TV applications and often requires a real, human touch to get a feel for how the development is providing a fluid experience for the end-user.

Our team will test all facets of your app, including the entire user journey, from installation to the end goals.

Performance Optimised

Our team carries out performance testing of the TV app and its integrations, to accommodate larger user bases and those who may suffer from poorer network capabilities.

  Load testing: we ensure your app can perform under high stress from user traffic

  Bandwidth throttling: we recreate poor network conditions in the test lab to simulate behaviour and incorporate this into development accordingly

  Page loading times: We check page loading times and contributing factors as part of the testing process

Streamlining the Certification Process

Manufacturers are becoming increasingly demanding in their requirements for certification and often certification processes can appear mysterious to industry outsiders. We have existing relationships with major manufacturers which can streamline the certification process and ensure that we can help you prepare all the documentation and forms to deploy on your required platforms.

We offer QA and testing for the TV Applications we build and we also support businesses with their existing TV Applications by offering bespoke QA and Testing support packages.
