Click to full-screen video

Click to full-screen video is a destination type that enables advertisers to brand a video playback experience on the Fire tablet. Tapping on the call-to-action button opens a full screen video that begins playing automatically. In addition to standard media controls, the video also typically contains either one or two call-to-action buttons at the top left corner of the screen; these buttons are only visible when the media controls are active. The video ends on a branded ‘end slate.’

Click to full-screen video call-to-action buttons may be added to any of our current creative executions, including Animated Wake Screens, Amazon Video Ads, or Panels.

Experience Overview

Fire tablet wake screens support up to two buttons, where is a Click to full-screen video button. Call-to-action text should clearly communicate the expected experience to the customer (i.e. Watch video, Watch trailer).

Once the customer taps on the call-to-action button, the video begins playing automatically in full screen with up to two buttons overlaid on the video. Buttons appear when video controls are visible.

The video resolves on a full screen end slate with a chosen image from the video. A headline, short description, and button(s) appear on top of the image. From here, customers may replay the video or tap on a call-to-action button.
