Koda makes distribution the following channels, which are broadcast from Britain and part of the Discovery Networks:
- Kanal 4
- Kanal 5
- Discovery Channel
- Animal Planet
- ID – Investigation Discovery
- Canal 9
The channels are broadcast from Britain, which means that they fall under the auspices of the British PRS (Performing Right Society). This means that PRS is in charge of entering into agreements for all use of music on these channels and distributes the royalties received in accordance with its own distribution rules.
When do we make distributions?

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 applied to 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.
Due to the considerable volume of Danish programming content on these channels – and the opportunities for more accurate distributions – Koda carries out distributions for music played on these channels. The distributions are done on the basis of full reporting received from Discovery Networks.
