Blackout dates are a three-month period when Affiliates cannot request new screenings for public events during the blackout time. Blackout dates are January through March each year.
Plan in advance if you know your organization may be interested in screening a Channel program in January, February, or March. You can still screen a program if the request is submitted before the following deadlines:
November 1 for January screenings
December 1 for February and March screenings
No requests for public screenings in January, February, or March will be accepted after December 1.
Affiliates can submit request forms during the blackout period, however, screening dates may not be before April 1.
