TV and Radio
The August distribution covers all TV and Radio areas where distributions are made monthly.

Furthermore, the August distribution includes monthly distributions for music used in commercials on various channels which have uplinks abroad but where Koda processes and makes distributions for the music used in commercials.

The August distribution sees the first distributions for music use in 2023 for a range of TV channels, specifically Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, Investigation Discovery, TLC and TV2 Sport X, with the distributions covering the first half of 2023.
Furthermore, final settlements are made for 2022 as regards the TV channels operated by TV2 and the radio channels operated by DR. The final settlement includes the channels where, after all the monthly distributions for the year have been made, some undistributed funds remain. These are then distributed proportionally based on the works and rightsholders involved in the original distributions.
