By Feb.16, 2017

Keep up-to-date with the broadcast industry with Joanna’s guide.

Looking for news, data, or commentary on the broadcast industry?  Broadcast is a weekly magazine (in print) and  online resource, providing material on all aspects of the media, including news, commissioning, analysis, opinion, interviews, platforms, production and ratings.

We keep the printed copy at the University Library at Media City, but you can use the online version from anywhere. So, if you want to get details of the next “reality” TV show, or trace the rise of Netflix as a media player, register for an account and get browsing.

Access to Broadcast – register for an account

The University pays a subscription to give all our staff and students get free access, but you still need to register to get a personal account.

Step 1

Go to the Broadcast page in Salford’s Library Search.


 Step 2

Click the link to complete the online form to register.

On Campus – you will be taken straight to the form. Many of the fields won’t be relevant to you as a student.  Just pick an option and move to the next field.

Off Campus – you will be asked for your University username and password, then select Register and complete the registration form as above.

Using your account

Once you have registered, you can use your account to get full access

Always use the link (above) in Library Search, then make sure you are signed in


If you want to search for a particular issue or date – use the publication index


Access hints and tips

You can find yourself being asked to pay for content, although you think you are signed in.

  • Check you are actually signed in. Your name should appear towards the top right-hand side of the screen.
  • Check you haven’t accidently opened another copy of Broadcast. Sign out of any previous copies.
