    Can anyone share what kind of back end the NBA channel generates? I’m ASCAP and I expect it’s a survey only channel but I haven’t seen any cue sheets yet or $$ yet. I ask because someone there has taken a liking to one of my tracks and uses it a lot. Tunesat will pick it up 5-15 times per day.
    Should I plan on buying a cup of coffee or a software upgrade?
    😉

    Good morning Alan, I can’t speak for ASCAP (SESAC here) but I have a feeling you will get a bigger Computer!

    Look at it this way as well. This will lead you to even bigger things by “listing your placements for other Libraries/Catalogs to see!!”

    Congratulations, and keep it moving!!

    Nice to hear that!Same story here,1 of my tracks was used widely during summer in the NBA channel.About 2-4 placements daily and each one of them got 1-2 repeats as well.It was used for the after-game commentary i think.
    I’m with BMI,we’ll see how it goes.

    Congrats Alan!

    Here’s a follow up (wow, it’s been a year)
    – Tunesat has detected 81 individual placements on the NBA channel for a total of 346 airings. Earliest was 4/2017, most recent was last week.
    – About 50 of those placements have cue sheets filed with ASCAP
    – I have received ZERO royalties from ASCAP

    I spoke with an ASCAP representative over the summer who said I should see some payments on October 2018…..nope.

    I will vent some more about ASCAP’s response today here:

    Hey guys, any updates if you ever got paid and if so can you share some numbers?

    Hey guys, any updates if you ever got paid and if so can you share some numbers?

    Here are some solid NBA Channel numbers for you White_Stripes:
    Time frame – Fall 2017 to Fall 2018
    # of placements – 92, durations from 0:12 to 4:55
    # of airings – Tunesat picked up about 450 airings
    # of cue sheets filed with ASCAP- 58
    Total income – $0

    Did I contact ASCAP? Yes
    Their reply? Sorry, it didn’t hit the survey, too small of a market. I’ve cone through the survey dates a few times and have never seen the NBA channel listed.
    ASCAP Surveys can be found here:
    https://www.ascap.com/help/royalties-and-payment/payment/cablesurveys

    It’s particularly annoying when you learn a 2+ minute placement missed a survey by a matter of hours.

    Sorry for the bad news White_Stripes

    oh damn, that survey system sounds horrible.
    Im with BMI though, so lets see how things will go there.

    Yeah, it’s a bummer. I had 150 cue sheets turn on for a news show. Told me it didn’t show up on their radar. I think it’s time for this crap to stop. If a cue sheet is turn in, it should be enough to get paid. I sent a letter to Paul Williams awhile back. Didn’t receive a reply.
