When do we make distributions?
To see when we make distributions, check our distribution schedule
Jingles, theme songs, etc.
- No reductions are applied to theme songs, jingles and background theme music for competitions. Distributions for music of this kind are made using the same values/rates as other mechanical performances.
- Reductions are applied for station IDs (call signs), station sound design, trailers and similar – i.e. for performances of music that has not been created exclusively for a particular show and which is primarily used outside of the actual scheduled broadcasts. The reduced value is set at 10% of the relevant TV channel’s usual per-minute value.
- Reductions are applied to music used in commercials. The reduced value is set at 50% of the relevant TV channel’s usual per-minute value.
Distributions for DK 4 programming are made on the basis of full (100%) reporting. If your music is used on DK 4, we will automatically be informed.
