    Welcome to EL&U. See Correct spelling of "program"; in brief, programme is not used in American English. – choster May 19 '17 at 23:57

Acording to Wiktionary, programme is the British spelling and you can therefore assume that program is the American spelling.

Also, according to Google Ngram, programme was originally the most common spelling but was then overtaken by program in around 1913.

As for which one you "should" use, well, do as you wish. I personally like to use archaic words that aren't spoken often anymore so I'd say go with programme if you're asking me.
