A TV show, unlike a feature film, is not a long, drawn out production. It can go for a maximum of one season (as in a soap opera), but the majority of shows will only go for a season or two before they air their final episodes. Most of these television shows that air on TV are successful and have a number of loyal fans that continue to watch through the difficult times. But there are times when a TV show is canceled after a handful of episodes.
This can be very detrimental for a show’s viewers, because the sudden cancellation usually does not come with a good reason behind it. The worst thing to happen in this situation is for a show to be canceled after only a couple of episodes. There are a couple of ways that this can be avoided; by putting more time into the promotional campaigns, casting, or promoting for the upcoming seasons to come. The first option would be to create a hype campaign about the upcoming seasons, so that there is enough hype built up that there is a big push to watch the new shows. For example, if a show is going to air in season 2, then it would be a good idea to start promoting for a summer season 2 starting in the fall, and all of the previous seasons that were already aired would be available for people to watch.
Another option would be to get viewers to sign up for email lists or RSS feeds for upcoming episodes of your web series. This is much like the buzz you get about a movie coming out that you have already seen. The only difference is that this will be delivered to your email each and every week, or every few days. The best thing about this option is that you do not need to have your television series directly compete with the soap opera that is on at the same time, unless of course your target audience is really only interested in one show. Otherwise, they might find that they are watching a completely different television series that does not conflict with the soap opera at all.
The final option for advertising your TV series online is simply to broadcast these episodes as streams on your own website or blog. This means that if your main article is about the current season of your TV show, you simply have the episodes streaming live on your site. If the audience is not interested in the content, they will not go watch it. This option is the cheapest way to promote your television show online, but the drawback is that you have no control over which episodes are actually shown when a person decides to watch them.
There are two other situations in which a Television broadcast may be required, and both of these are a bit more complicated. If your TV show is going to be aired on some sort of educational program, then you will have to submit a copy of the script for them to use in the classroom. They must purchase a license for any type of media they want to use to broadcast the content, and there are many places that you can send this licensing request. For instance, you can send a request to several television stations, or you can send a request to the U.S. Copyright Office. No matter what method you choose, however, you should be sure to send in the proper documentation with your request.
If you’re wondering why you need a North American Television license to air your TV series, let me suggest a scenario that would-be viewers would be quite happy to hear. Imagine if you had an episode of your popular TV series that was missing one crucial scene, and the network did not have the necessary rights to air it without obtaining a North American Television License. Do you think they would want to air it?
