TV rundown software for the rest of us
If you're looking for TV rundown software these days, you have plenty of options to choose from. You've probably heard of expensive enterprise-level solutions like ENPS and iNews, but what about something called Rundown Creator?
Rundown Creator is a simple and affordable TV rundown program. It has all of the core features you’ve come to expect from TV rundown software like ENPS and iNews, but none of the super advanced features that drive up the price like MOS-based automation or closed captioning.
Instead, Rundown Creator focuses on a limited, yet powerful set of features, that allow you and your students to collaborate on creating rundowns for TV shows, timing them, and writing scripts. It also has a built-in teleprompter that pulls its content directly from your show, and auto-updates as changes are made.

Best of all, Rundown Creator is completely web-based. So, it runs in your web browser, just like Gmail or Google Calendar, whether you’re on a PC, Mac, or Linux computer; at school, at work, at home, or on the go. Rundown Creator is also mobile-friendly too -- so you can use it on your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or Android device.
Rundown Creator is priced at just $399.99/year for schools with up to 50 users. That, in addition to the features it offers, makes Rundown Creator a perfect fit for elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, or colleges that produce daily, weekly, or monthly TV shows.
