To anyone at Opera out there, please read this post: http://www.quora.com/How-did-Udemy-get-5-000-courses-online-so-quickly, perhaps this can enlighten a bit to what we, developers are looking for on a plattform. Do not disregard countries! there is money everywhere, also there are developers everywhere. We won't let you down.

Lack of attention on the Opera TV ProductsOpera TV Store
I recently bought a Sony Bravia TV for my home, it's my first SmartTV. Beautiful, sharp, great Wifi connection, Watching Netflix was a delight from day 1, the YouTube app looks awful, but it works, and I get what i need, at great quality, my son quickly discovered the Android-TV connection that allowed us to control the tv Youtube content with our phones. I was just blown away, worth every penny. But then I got to the Opera TV Store, great presentation, superb until I started to browse on the apps, god what a Mess! I mean, I know, it's a TV, it's not a PlayStation nor an Xbox but the lack of quality apps for the Opera TV Store is just shameful, I thought to myself, I own an indie software company. How about entering the TV App market? Now once I set eyes on the phantom town this forum is, I get it why the lack of quality. There are absolutely no incentives on the TV market section. Barely any support team on sight, I still don't understand why people don't like to cover in deep the monetization programs internationally, I mean, people gotta eat, right? Sony and Samsung are international powerhouses and in every smart tv worldwide that is selling with these brands, Opera in there exclusively, there is no Google, there is no Apple, there is no Microsoft, all we have is Opera Store, nothing else. Remember that every single SmartTV owner worldwide is no Poor-John-Doe, we are middle-to-upper class intelligent, well fed and read people, even in the worst 3rd World Countries. Remember also that TV is MADE for advertisements, international advertisements. Why oh why there are no teams of people acquiring developers, ensuring quality levels, promoting innovation on the plattform, selling the market to established advertisement powerhouses. I mean, if I put a cool app, I believe everyone could live with a 10-15 second video ad before playing my game, or checking on tweets, or reviewing greatest posts on facebook or quora, linkedin or bloomberg, checking market trends, listening to audio blogs, reviewing presentations... I mean jeez! Opera TV Store plattform should look alive and flourishing like YouTube, or Play Store not quiet and deppressing like it is right now. Who is running this ?
