This is done via the scheduled Scripts in the channel

You then add the following 2 items. Schedule when you want the pause and resume with the cron string.

It's easy to miss, so I'll point it out here -- make sure on your 'resume' script that you click the 'Run script while channel is paused' checkbox, or else it won't run!
