Do show trailers pay any royalty?

Post by Telefunkin » Wed Jul 29, 2020 1:43 pm

Hi folks,
I've lurked for some time without posting but I know what you're all up to ;)

I've just noticed that Tunesat is showing about 40 plays of a co-write (with my good mate cosmicdolphin) and it looks like its from a trailer for a show on CNN (a promo featuring an excerpt from an upcoming episode). I've searched on the forums and it seems to be heads or tails whether trailers generate any royalties, but if anyone has a more definite answer on that I'd be interested to know. Either way though, I'm happy to have the placement, and especially if it means the track is used in the actual episode that's featured in the trailer.

Cheers,
Graham.

Presuming that you mean the kind of trailer that are promo ads for upcoming tv shows.

I have had two of those kind of placements and the second one just paid but the first one didn't.
Both seemed to be on decent channels where I have seen payments before.

Just checked back and noticed that the paying placement was a network channel and the other a cable.
No idea if that is relevant but it's 50/50 for me so far.

Actually asked the same question around the time I saw the first one crop up on tunesat but got no responses to it.
