    Hello,

    Just want to know , how you could contact them and make the actually "listen"? I would like to get the rights to use them commercially.Similar to Hulu & Netflix , but I would also allow streaming in the EU & UK , which Netflix & Hulu don't offer. I know it will be a big task , but I'm up for it. Yes I would also pay them via the no. of times the film is streamed.

    Thanks
    -Irock

    It's not easy dealing with these people.

    They get bombarded all the time.

    If you want to cut a deal... you must have something going already.
    They do not like to hear what you will build.
    They want to see that you have had it for years and can handle anything that comes up.

    Secondly they would go thru your financials, to make sure you are capable of handling such task.



    Good Luck

    ummmm....

    Why do you think Hulu and Netflicks don't offer streaming in the EU and UK?
    Do you really think it's just because they don't want to? or that they really "hadn't thought of that"?

    If Hulu and Netflicks (or even itunes) can't always manage to get the rights to distribute content from the big networks, do you really think they are going to deal with you?

    Unless you have some major upfront money to play with, and a proven track record, they will not talk to you.

    AND even if you did have the money, many networks are distributing their content for themselves (CBS's tv.com for example) and won't be sharing.


    Maybe you should consider a smaller project first, to get a feel for how things work.... ;)

    I did think this , but It's not a matter of why but , how?


    How did you think people started then? They had to start as a sole trader some when.

    You don't just create a massive company.

    Just no...

    There is another way to pitch theses people with your idea. Contact some of the big talent agencies (CAA, ICM, Endevor, etc) with your business proposal. If they think it will work, they will hook you up with some Hollywood vc's to properly finance the project. After that, it will be the the talent agent who will make the pitch to the studios for you. Going directly to the studios with no introduction from a trusted reference is very difficult. Good luck with your venture.

    do a little research:

    Hulu DID start as a MASSIVE company:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hulu
    $100 million for 10%

    it's NOT just a matter of how,
    it's a matter of investment capitol and a proven track record.

    Plant your feet back on the ground, and make one successful website before you launch yourself into the clouds.

    You should try to obtain the rights from programmers. Programmers are the middlemen between the studios (that produce the content) and telco/cable companies (that distribute the content). They have deals with a number of different studios for their content, package them (e.g. sports package, comedy package, game show package), and then sell these packages to telco/cable companies.

    Buying rights to distribute to over the internet will be very expensive.
