Learn how channels display across various devices within rows and on the item detail page.*
Assets are your catalog of video and non-video content. Each of your assets contains metadata (including asset images), offers, and an internal reference to a video file (if applicable). The AXIS reference apps support multiple asset types, including movies, TV shows, live channels, and programs. These assets can display throughout your apps across different row types. Movies and TV shows are then playable from the asset's item details page, whereas channels and their associated assets are played directly from the channel (linear) rows. Linear schedules (which contain limited metadata) automatically link to a related program, episode, or movie asset.
Channels in rows:
Channels display in a linear row with each asset represented by a thumbnail, title, and scheduled time.

Alternatively, channels in rows can be displayed as an on-now channel list showing the current on-now schedule for each channel, or an episode guide that shows on now and upcoming content for some or all the channels you offer.
In the following example, channel assets display in a linear row with each asset represented by a thumbnail, title, and scheduled time:
