Interrupt 0

The main content is paused while the content of the MediaBreak plays.

Replace 1

The main content is not paused, but is replaced by the content of the MediaBreak.


In a typical implementation, Interrupt is used for on-demand content so that none of the content is obscured by the media break, and Replace is used for live content so that the content doesn't accumulate a delay while pausing during the media break.
