What If You Don't Have A Broadcast Club

The #1 impediment to Schools taking part is the issue of manpower – many schools have no one to run the program.
Even when schools do have an established broadcast program with plenty of participating students,
there are simply too many events – they can’t cover them all.
We now have a solution for both…

As an added bonus, the more annual passes you sell online, the more money your school keeps from each purchase.
