    So I am wanting to make a tv app that is basically nothing more than an overlay that has chat coming up the side. I know that samsung supports overlays, but I do not know how to accomplish it in unity. Is there a way to do this? My hole app is literally a facebook login, and then a clear overlay that shows push notifications from the cloud up the side. I know how to do all of this in unity besides it being an overlay. Any help on this is greatly appreciated!

    Hey there. Yes we've enabled the ability to make the background of Unity's rendering layer transparent. In Samsung TV's playersettings in Resolution and Presentation there is a checkbox for "Ignore BG Alpha Clear".
