The Media Pod licence lets you set up an unlimited number of screens. For each screen you will need to purchase a digital signage player that is sold separately at a cost of £99 ex. VAT each.
YouTube is a great platform for social video however it is not a great resource for primary schools. Videos on YouTube often contain distractions, inappropriate comments, adverts and links to other videos. These security issues mean that quite a lot of schools restrict access to YouTube. Media Pod is your own platform that is specific to your school so the content is moderated and controlled, without adverts or distracting links.
