A product is what end users or customers might buy, rent or view. It will typically be a movie, a TV episode, a live event or a TV channel though it could be any element that is promoted in its own right. A product contains the metadata about a video and links to a playable video stream. Products can be scheduled to appear at different times to different segments of customers at different prices and in different business models. They can be organised into groups using categories and Collections.
The metadata on a product includes a number of fields like origin (year & country) to parental guidance as well as images.

Media - either live (Live Media) or uploaded video VoD Media) can be attached to products as trailers or features
Collections - allows products to be curated into lists and ordered
Availability Windows - products can be made available in different payment models, at different prices, at different times and to different customer segments through the use of Availability Windows
