To create a channel you must declare the playback mode and the output types of the channel (HLS/DASH/CMAF). Each channel output provides a set of playback URLs for each output type.
Step 4: Schedule and Program configuration
Create a schedule, which is an ordered list of programs for playback. A program is the association of a piece of content with a scheduling trigger. You can also insert personalized ads into the programs.
Step 5: Channel activation
Start the channel through the API or the AWS Management Console. The channel plays out for the duration of the schedule.
