Add a Channel Gate

Gates are a customizable entry-point that require users to take a certain action before accessing your Channel.

There are four main types of gate: Login, Password, Entitlement, and Access Code.

Each can be customized with a Title, Subtitle, as well as Mobile and Desktop Background Images.
