The School Broadcast Program provides individual schools with an education-based broadcasting program that enables students and faculty to capture, edit and publish original content. The NFHS Network provides your school with the software and platform needed to produce and distribute TV-like events that showcase the excellence in our schools - such as sports, graduation, school newscasts, guest speakers and award ceremonies - for broadcast over the Internet. You add your own laptop and production equipment (cameras, microphones, etc.) and you're on your way! Broadcasting these events is a great way for a school to showcase their students and activities while strengthening the connection with parents, coaches, players, boosters and the community. Fans can watch all the events on the school’s branded portal on MHSAA.tv and the NFHS Network.
Subject to specific conditions, the MHSAA Handbook now allows schools producing games on their own on the internet to stream them live on a subscription basis on MHSAA.tv, or a subscription or password-protected basis on other platforms. Schools are creating fresh revenue streams for their programs by selling subscriptions to MHSAA.tv and through advertising during the events you broadcast. (NOTE: No matter which platform or provider is used, MHSAA approval is necessary to stream events live.)
SBP programs are generally operated through the existing school curriculum or as an after-school club. The MHSAA, PlayOn! Sports and the NFHS Network offer round the clock support.

There are a number of ways to stream video, but none are as comprehensive or do more to make you successful than the MHSAA’s School Broadcast Program.
