This clause emphasizes the importance of maintaining content that aligns with family-friendly values and standards.
  • How David Harris Katz Entertainment, Inc. monetize titles?
    David Harris Katz Entertainment, Inc. does not take a percent of gross revenue. David Harris Katz Entertainment, Inc. utilizes the “EquiShare Payment Allocation" method for the allocation of revenue generated from commercial placements within titles licensed from Content Provider. Under this payment method, revenue is allocated to Content Provider in proportion to the number of Titles they license to David Harris Katz Entertainment, Inc. When a Title is licensed to a station, and running during a specific quarter, each Title is accorded equal weight in the payment allocation process. This method utilizes an algorithm to ensure fair and proportional distribution of revenue among Content Providers. David Harris Katz Entertainment, Inc. receives their equal share of revenue based off of their own titles in conjunction with content producers, relative to the total revenue generated, during that particular quarter.
  • Are there specific strategies in place to promote newer or high-quality films over the older content in your distribution network, especially considering the potential dilution of revenue with a large catalog?
    Our catalog remains intentionally curated, comprising fewer than 100 titles. We present our entire library to stations as a comprehensive offering for their consideration. Stations have the opportunity to review our diverse range of genres and series, selecting the titles that align with their programming needs. Additionally, we provide tailored recommendations based on our understanding of their preferences. For instance, if we believe a new title would be particularly suitable for a station, we proactively share specific links to facilitate their review and selection process.
  • I’m on Filmhub so we would need to take their channels out of the agreement. With Filmhub primarily handling streaming distribution and having partnerships like Discovery Channel, could you clarify which broadcast channels or platforms you intend to utilize that do not overlap with my Filmhub coverage?
    We exclusively provide content to local broadcast stations within the United States, refraining from engagement with streaming platforms associated with Filmhub. Our catalog is tailored for distribution to over 1600 available broadcast stations nationwide.
  • How does the “EquiShare” model handle revenue distribution among high-performing versus older, potentially less popular films?
    We've observed that both older and newer titles perform equally well in our revenue model, known as Per Inquiry (PI). In PI, we integrate commercials that prompt viewers to dial a phone number for engagement, a common strategy seen in commercials featuring listed phone numbers. Interestingly, we've noticed that older viewers tend to engage more through this method compared to younger viewers. Consequently, older titles often generate more calls than newer ones. Conversely, with newer titles, families sometimes watch together, including both older adults and younger viewers. While the younger audience enjoys the content, the older generation may be more inclined to make inquiries, resulting in a balanced engagement dynamic across different types of titles.
  • Given that all films receive an equal share of revenue under the “EquiShare” model, does this apply to films that do not perform well or at all in your distribution channels? How does this affect new entries to your catalog?
    Allocation of revenue is based on a proportional distribution among companies, not on an equal basis per film. The share a company receives depends on the number of titles they have airing during any given quarter. For instance, a series with a younger audience may air weekly throughout the year, whereas films like yours might only air once or twice per quarter. On linear broadcast television, titles are scheduled and may have limited airings. Thus, while your titles may be robust, relying solely on calls generated during their runtime could result in minimal revenue. However, since all titles run the same commercials, there's collective strength in numbers. Increased exposure of commercials to viewers enhances the likelihood of calls. A viewer may not respond to a commercial during your movie airing at night but might do so when seeing the same commercial during a different title the next day. As our model allows commercials to air across various time slots, each title caters to different viewer demographics, maximizing overall engagement potential.
