What is the Difference Between Channel and Landing Pages?

channel can be a mix of both live and video on demand (VOD) content. Channels can be set to TV or grid mode. When a stream goes live via scheduled content or streaming directly, the channel will flip into live mode, and then resume its offline state when the stream is over.

landing page is for VOD content only. It features a mix of row types (video, playlist, spotlight, and channels) that users can select from. The landing page will never contain live content, meaning you'll be unable to schedule content or add a live stream to a landing page.

Note: Overlays will NOT appear on landing pages. However, you can add a sidebar to your landing page for information and interactivity.
