The page is divided into three sections:

  • Live - All the webcasts that are currently broadcasting, and is referred to as the gallery. The most recent Webcast displaye in the Gallery is referred to as the "hero".
  • Upcoming - All upcoming webcasts
  • Recorded - All webcasts that have finished broadcasting.

There is a maximum of 5 webcasts that can be loaded into the display carousel.

The live webcasts will be shown first and are sorted by the ones that started most recently. 

When there is one live webcast, the next ones that are shown are the upcoming webcasts, displayed according to proximity of the date they are to start.

When there are other open slots, the recorded webcasts are sorted by the ones that have finished most recently.
