PREMIUM SUBSCRIPTION CUSTOMERS

 

Will I receive a refund?

Premium subscription customers who purchased Channel One News through their school or district, should contact 844-283-0284 or customerservice@channelone.com for information regarding a refund or credit toward other HMH offerings.

Premium customers who purchased Channel One News using a credit card will see a credit for the remainder of the subscription period in their next statement.

 

Will I continue to have access to Channel One resources?

Channel One News will no longer be producing a daily news program.

However, current customers who purchased a premium subscription will continue to have access to the Channel One video library for the remaining length of their subscription purchase.

The library includes more than 4,000 video segments (many with standards aligned associated curriculum) and 2,000+ transcripts of prior Channel One News newscasts and is searchable by grade, subject, topic and skills and strategies, as well as by keyword. The associated curriculum materials include a transcript the segment, discussion prompts, assessment questions, vocabulary exercises and a media literacy activity.

 

How can I access Channel One News Video Library?

Click here for access: Channel One News Curriculum and Video Library.

If you are a premium subscriber, log in at www.channelone.com/curriculum. Each school is assigned a unique user name and password. If you do not have that information, please check with your Channel One Administrator or call the Channel One customer service team at 844-283-0284, or email us at customerservice@channelone.com

If your password has been changed, you will need to make sure that all users at your school have the updated information.

How can teachers use the video library in the classroom?

Since the video library contains a wide array of topics from prior Channel One newscasts and can be searched by content area, grade and keywords, teachers find multimedia content and multimodal instructional routines that are perfect for creating customized lesson plans.

The video library is also a great resource to share with students to provide age-appropriate research.

Additional issues to consider:

  • We recommend you shut down any excess applications, like Outlook or Word, before viewing video.
  • Some school districts create filters on their firewalls to prevent users on the network from accessing streaming media. This can be a content consideration or an effort to curb use of bandwidth. Contact your district or IT Administrator to see if there is such a block in place.
  • If you’re on an older computer, you may notice more buffering delays.
  • If your school is on a large shared network, you may experience issues related to bandwidth congestion during heavy internet-traffic hours.

 

Who should I contact if I continue to have issues viewing Channel One News videos?

If you are using appropriate bandwidth and a fast enough processor, please contact your IT Administrator to make sure there isn’t an issue with your school’s network. If you are still unable to view videos, please give us a call – we’re happy to help!
