Or select add Remaining Countries if you have worldwide rights
You can also exclude any countries for delivery by adding them to to the block countries box.
Scheduling the Start Date and Time
You can also use the Distribution tab to set the Start Date and time of your Video.
Please note that if this is not updated the video will go live immediately.

Use the calendar field to schedule the start date.
Use the drop-downs to schedule the start time.
Scheduling End Date and Time
You can also use the Distribution tab to set an End date and time for your video.
