When you upload a new episode to a show, it will be available on demand based on the Show settings.
Now, how do you schedule it at a particular time on your live channel?
Quite simple, all you need to do is map it to a content partner account and then schedule it.
Let me walk you through it step-by-step
Under the Content section of the left menu select Upload and then Upload Video.
Click the Upload video button and select the video file you would like to upload.
Once the video is uploaded, upload a Poster for the video in the 16:9 aspect ratio. After selecting the poster select the Proceed button.
While uploading a video, you need to map the video to a Show from the dropdown list of shows that you have already created.
⚠️ Note: Every video must be associated with a show. And a video can only be associated with one show.
Though the association is one-to-one, it is editable.
For example, if you are uploading the Music and Beyond Episode-10 and you want the video to be available on-demand along with the other 9 episodes and also want to schedule the broadcast of the same, you need to do the following:
Select the content partner you want to schedule the broadcast from the drop-down list.
⚠️ Note: Only shows associated with a partner can be scheduled at a selected time, like 6:00 pm
Select the show “Music and Beyond” from the dropdown menu as shown below
Now, the video is available on demand on your website and apps, along with the other videos in the show.
To schedule the video at a particular time, Follow the steps here.
From the Video Playout Section of the left menu, select Manage EPG (VOD to Live) Content > Add Program
