In Virtual Channel applications, VOD assets and Live streams are scheduled as slots for insertion in a live stream, instead of the original content. Therefore it relies on the Substitution logic.
If there is no program scheduled for the defined audience at a particular time, no contextualization takes place and the original manifest is returned with minor changes.
If at the time where the manifest manipulation happens the manifest of the program scheduled is not available, the process of contextualisation cannot happen. As a result, the manifest will not be altered.
