Live Streaming Issue (HLS)

Hi,

I am new to roku channel development, developing a channel which shows the live streaming video like the live news,
my xml is as follows,

<title> ABC NEWS</title>
<contentId>10001</contentId>
<contentType>Talk</contentType>
<contentQuality>HD</contentQuality>
<streamFormat>hls</streamFormat>
<media>
<streamQuality>HD</streamQuality>
<streamBitrate>0</streamBitrate>
<streamUrl>http://abc.livenews.com/i/abc_live4@136330/index_1200_av-b.m3u8</streamUrl>
</media>
<synopsis>News</synopsis>
<genres>News</genres>
<runtime>124</runtime>

After installing in Roku, while i open it says retrieving, after 5 seconds its exit from that screen.
It's the live video, so there will not be any run time. I have referred number of topics and forums, everyone just have the example like the above xml, but live channel will not have run time length.
if someone come across this type of  scenario kindly help me out with some examples.

Your URL doesn't work when pasted in Safari. Maybe try a known-good HLS manifest to test, NASA has one: https://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/NTV-Public-IPS.m3u8
