Consistent with our state of the art affiliate communications systems, Network Operations is pleased to announce that we are rolling out a new feature in APT;
Email Notifications of Whats New Messages regarding program information/changes/updates occurring within 3 business days.

After registering for this feature, you will automatically receive Whats New email notifications on your desktop, tablet or smart phone based on your individual business requirements.
For example, if a program booking is effective within the next 3 business days, an email notification will be sent to you and a Whats New message will be posted in APT simultaneously.

Register now on the APT website. See bottom of home page, click on "Subscribe here".

NBC, this is a great thing you're doing, however you're a bit late to the party.

Visitors to this website have been requesting RSS feeds of this blog for 6 years.

When each new post is published, RSS sends a message to subcribers on their cell phones and/or desktops. Titles of posts give subscribers a summary of "how important is it?" when out in the field and away from "Urgent Messaging."

Local salespeople in diary markets aren't sitting at a desk all day, and just because you've sold a spot in NBC Prime doesn't mean it will actually air.  Experienced AEs manage their clients' schedules to reduce make-goods and increase customer satisfaction, but without prompt and actionable information, they are helpless against "program information/changes/updates occurring within 3 business days."
