Syndicated Shows Providing Playlists

May 20, 2013

Syndicated Shows:

One of the benefits of reporting through the CPB/SX agreement via NPR Digital Services is that NPR DS serves as the aggregator of syndicated programming, so they can be included in stations’ quarterly SoundExchange reports. Stations then don’t need to collect and report this data themselves; instead they just need to add the program to their guide schedule.

To let us know what shows you currently stream, you must fill out a schedule grid for each of your content streams in either Composer Basic or Composer Pro. To do so go to Create/Edit Program Guide using the global What do you want to do? drop down navigation and fill in or update the guide for your chosen two week reporting period each calendar quarter.

If your station offers more than one content stream, access the Create/Edit Program Guide screen for your other streams by using the My Stations drop down in the upper right hand corner, and then clicking on Create/Edit Program Guide.

If you stream a syndicated program not on the below list, your responsible for providing the playlist for the music streamed, and I urge you to have the program producer register below.
