Does our school qualify for the free SCHOOL CHOICE and Local Channels programming packages?

The SCHOOL CHOICE and local channels programming packages are free services that DIRECTV offers to qualified schools. In order to receive these programming packages, your school must:

  • Be an accredited public or private educational institution.
  • Offer grades K-12 only. Universities, community colleges, day care centers, and public libraries do not qualify.
  • Be housed in a facility zoned as a school building by the local municipality.
  • Limit viewing to a classroom environment.

Programming is for educational use only. The system may not be installed in any residential/dormitory/cafeterias/lobby areas or used in publicly accessible areas. Click here for more information on The SCHOOL CHOICE package and how to sign up.
