OTT/CTV messages combine the first layer message and privacy manager into a single setup, and introduces the concept of views to the configuration process. Configuration for an OTT/CTV message is distinct from other property types to account for navigation of the consent experience by an end-user via remote control. 

Create OTT/CTV message

Click Messages on the left-hand panel and select a regulatory regime (GDPR Messages or U.S. Privacy Messages)

Click OTT/CTV from either subsequent menu.


Use the property field in the upper right-hand corner to select a property for which you will create an OTT/CTV message.


Click + New Message to create a new OTT/CTV message.


Use the subsequent page to customize the OTT/CTV message for the property and click Create Message when finished. In the following section, we will provide a brief overview of how to navigate the OTT/CTV message builder.

Navigate OTT/CTV message builder

  Note: Sourcepoint recommends that you begin the configuration of the OTT Privacy Manager from a template.

In this section, we will cover the basic layout of the OTT/CTV message builder and how to customize components.

The OTT/CTV message is divided into distinct views that an end-user can navigate between on their OTT/CTV device via their remote control. These views are dependent on the regulatory framework to which the message belongs. 

Use the Navigate Views panel in the upper left-hand corner of the builder to access any of the views. 

GDPR TCF U.S. Privacy
  • Privacy Manager OTT - Home View
  • Vendors View
  • Categories View
  • Vendor/Category Details View
  • Privacy Policy View
  • Custom View


Configure general settings for the OTT/CTV message at any time by clicking Home in the breadcrumbs and using the Settings panel on the right-hand side.


From the Privacy Manager OTT Settings tab, ensure that the Vendor List Preview is set to your desired Vendor List.

  Note: This step is not required and only meant to allow for a preview of purposes and vendors while building your OTT/CTV message. Ultimately, the end-user will see the purposes and vendors for the active Vendor List to which you have added the property


While on a particular view in the builder, click + in the toolbar panel to add a new component to the view.

To customize a component in any view, click the component in the builder and use the Settings panel on the right-hand side to customize the details of that component.

  Note: The breadcrumbs will enable you to quickly see which component you are currently editing.


For additional configuration options, use the Custom CSS editor.


Apply your custom styling by adding the CSS Handle to a component.
