    I’ve been using Tunesat “50 tracks free account”, for about 18 months, and it’s kind of love / hate for me. I love that its free, the speed of detection, the audio clips. Thank you Tunesat! Thank you!

    OTH I find that it only detects a small portion of my placements, normally a few from – MTV, CNBC, UK Ch 4, Telecinco. I get no detections from Discovery, History Ch, Netflix, Peacock, etc … and virtually nothing from all other countries (yes, I have regular BMI royalties from) – Germany, Japan, Sweden, Austria, Canada, Brazil, etc, etc, etc

    Would it be more accurate if I had a paid account? Though I really can’t justify the cost yet.

    What’s your experience with Tunesat?

    Tunesat doesn’t detect on Netflix or in Japan, Canada or Brazil. I use trqk.io (which uses BMAT) as it detects some of those countries. Tunesat misses A LOT of my placements probably more than 50%.

    I do like Tunesat. It doesn’t catch everything, but it’s a nice free way to see if you’re getting placements in the US and Europe. It is quicker than waiting til you receive your statements. And Afilion is right, it doesn’t do streaming platforms or Asia, Africa, Australia etc. At the least it helps me see how much my music is getting out there, especially when working with new libraries.

    I’ve gotten some HBO detections, but not any other streaming platforms for some reason.

    you can go to tunesat.com and click the channels button (next to the login) to see which countries and channels are being tracked.

    White_Stripes … Yes, the channels button shows channels where I have placements, but Tunesat is not detecting … Discovery, the History Channel, Syfy, and others… And countries where I’m not getting detections as well.

    i’m not sure why you’re tunesat is not detecting Discovery and a History channel. i get a huge amount of placements on both those networks use the free version of tunesat and always see them show up. it does miss alot thou as others have said and it barely picks up anything for me outside of the US.

    yeah as others have said tunesat can be quite spotty, additionaly lately they have some issues again (which seem to affect european channels only).
    so dont rely too much on tunesat and rather use it as a “bonus” tool to catch some of your placements.

    oh and to your intial question: paid and unpaid accounts should pick up the exact same number of placements.

    Does anyone know if BMAT picks up better than Tunesat overall? Or better yet, what is the best service or is it better to be a part of all of them?

    White_Stripes … Agreed, I think of it as a bonus. That’s interesting about paid vs. unpaid – Thanks

    Roscoe … Great question! I also wonder if BMAT has a free option like Tunesat. I see they have a free trial but I don’t know if it leads to a free account.

    Dannyc … Interesting. I don’t have a huge amount of placements on Discovery or History or Syfy etc … but they’ve been regular royalties in BMI for years, and never a Tunesat detection.

    jdstamper.. are the placements lengths you’re seeing on your PRO generally short like less than 15secs? if so that might be the reason they are not showing up on tunesat. when i see them on tunesat they are 30secs or more.

    Dannyc … In BMI most of my placements are longer than 15 seconds. In Tunesat most of my detections are less than 30 seconds.

    I notice there is no longer any telephone number on tunesat’s website. After logging in to them via Facebook for about 7 years, my Facebook login stopped working, so I tried to use my username and password, only to find out it is wrong. I think tunesat sends my reset requests to my old, no longer available, email. tunesat also does not respond to my email requests to reset my password. Has anybody had success contacting them recently?

    I found the Tunesat phone number in a search, and got the answering service. All their socials are abandoned years ago. Their website talks about their Google+. I wonder if they are on the way out.

    Try Chris Woods at chris@tunesat.com. Haven’t spoken with him in a couple of years though.
