Streaming live content.

Hello, 
I recently created my own channel using script examples and changing each to fit my content.  I am trying to create another test channel with live streaming video.  I have video streaming at the url in the code ( http://fp-omni.fiberpipe.tv/tvctv_live/ ... ylist.m3u8).  I load the json script but when I access the video it starts to load but freezes about a third of the way through.  If this is the incorrect code to use, could someone give an example. I have tried to use code from the examples but myjson.com says it is invalid.  I basically need to know what the code would be from top to bottom.  I would really appreciate some help. 

I have modified my code to the following:
 {
  "providerName": "TVCTV",
  "language": "en-US",
  "lastUpdated": "2017-03-16T12:00:00.000Z",
  "shortFormVideos": [
    {
      "id": "tvctv1",
      "title": "TVCTV Test",
      "shortDescription": "This is a streaming test.",
      "thumbnail": "http://www.boise.isonmy.tv/images/tvctv800x450.png",
      "genres": [
        "action"
      ],
      "tags": [
        "tvctv"
      ],
      "releaseDate": "2017-03-03",
      "content": {
        "dateAdded": "2017-03-03T12:00:00.000Z",
        "captions": [

        ],
        "duration": 5265,
        "adBreaks": [
          "00:00:00"
        ],
        "videos": [
          {
            "url": "http://fp-omni.fiberpipe.tv/tvctv_live/show/playlist.m3u8",
            "quality": "HD",
            "videoType": "HLS"
          }
        ]
      }
    }
  ],
  "playlists": [
    {
      "name": "btv",
      "itemIds": [
        "tvctv1"
      ]
    },
    {
      "name": "misc",
      "itemIds": [
        "tvctv1"
      ]
    },
    {
      "name": "short-form",
      "itemIds": [
        "tvctv1"
      ]
    }
  ],
  "categories": [
    {
      "name": "TVCTV",
      "playlistName": "short-form",
      "order": "manual"
    },
    {
      "name": "tvctv",
      "playlistName": "btv",
      "order": "manual"
    },
    {
      "name": "Miscellaneous",
      "playlistName": "misc",
      "order": "manual"
    }
  ]
}

Re: Streaming live content.

That appears to be an audio-only stream.
