Our automated Certification Testing tool is not yet equipped to run deep linking or content playback performance tests on a channel that has an intermediary introduction screen such as the one you're describing here. 

Our Partner Success team is aware of this shortcoming and is available to grant exemptions to these testing requirements on a case-by-case basis. Please go ahead and contact them via our web contact form, and they'll help launch your channel — https://developer.roku.com/contact

Note that we are constantly improving our certification automation tooling, and may introduce updates in the future that enable testing on a channel like yours from within the Developer Dashboard in the future.

Hi @oa24153,

Have you taken a look at our Deep Linking documentation?

Also, make sure you have provided Deep Linking test parameters in the Developer Dashboard prior to trying to publish your channel.
