Schedule Episodes

You will schedule your program using the Scheduling Form, found in your "Member Tools" box. 

In the past, after the episode that you have submitted has derived, you will get a new tab at the top of that episode page and you would schedule using that.  While this function appears to work, it no longer functions as it should. 

To schedule your programs you must fill out the Scheduling Form and submit it to us.  Please see the instructions below.  If you have any questions regarding scheduling, please let us know by emailing or calling.   

New Producer Scheduling

If you are a new producer, here are the steps to follow:

     - Open the Time Slot Schedule, which can be found under the Watch Shows drop-down in the navigation bar near the top of the SCM webpage.  The white "local programming" time slots on this schedule represent open time into which you can schedule your program.  

     - On the Scheduling Form, be sure to enter the name of your Episode correctly.  We suggest you follow the naming convention described throughout the website, "Seriesname_Episodename_yy_mm_dd.mpg/mp4/etc."

     - Enter up to three upcoming dates and times per program/per week into the Scheduling Form that match open time slots in the Time Slot Schedule and submit. 

     - You need to submit the form at least 72 hours prior to the first scheduled airing you are submitting.  

     - Your programs will be scheduled into the selected time slots unless another new producer scheduled into that time slot ahead of you.  

     - Remember that half hour shows must be no longer than 28-minutes and hour shows must be no longer than 58-minutes.
