I may finally upgrade to a paying account.
Tunesat picked up a 1:30 placement on MTV about a year ago that airs a lot. After a long wait for the cue sheet I inquired with ASCAP who told me a cue sheet was filed but my music was not on it. I contacted the library and they are correcting the cue sheet. The show is available online so I was able to send a link to prove my case. IF, everything works I should get pretty decent PRO payment adjustment.
If that happens, then I will definitely start paying for an account. I know I would never have known about that placement without Tunesat. This one placement discovery could potentially cover the subscription cost for a year or more..
The only downside is hearing all those non-paying promos, Argh! They especially kill me when they air at the beginning of the month and wipe out my 50 free detections in a few days. HAHAFebruary 27, 2017 at 3:16 pm #26891

The promos and Scripps shows drive me nuts!March 8, 2017 at 4:58 pm #26935chuckhughes2Participant
Art, I meant to ask, what is the rationale for non-paying promos? Is it that the promo is just an ad for the show in which you theoretically will be actually getting paid for the usage?
And what about when your music is used on the promo, but does not actually appear in the episode? Is there still no payment for the use?March 8, 2017 at 5:10 pm #26936
Theoretically BMI will pay on most promos IF (and a big IF) the network would file the logs. At least that is what I have been told. Officially BMI only pays on the major networks. The list is on their site.
The networks/channels get to use them as they are generally part of a blanket license they paid for. Which, of course, most of us don’t share in.May 9, 2022 at 8:19 am #39713aenworldParticipant
In the last one week, Tunesat is completely dead. Is it just me?
Thank you!May 9, 2022 at 8:30 am #39714
Seems okay for me.May 9, 2022 at 11:09 am #39715AlanParticipant
For me it’s a couple of days behind, which I’d common. My most recent was early Sunday am (over 48 hours ago), but I occasionally have empty spells too.May 10, 2022 at 6:30 pm #39724AfilionParticipant
Art, what if the promos appear on Numerator with an ad code? Can you send it to ASCAP/BMI along with the video as proof to get paid? I have around 20-30 promos that have ran on Fox News and Fox Business.May 10, 2022 at 7:15 pm #39725

Haven not heard of promos with an ad code. Call the commercial dept in Nashville and ask them. They are usually very responsive.
