We are currently building our Popcorn Trailer catalog both on Amazon and Tubi. Your title will be included on Popcorn Trailer platforms and third party platforms we negotiate with in the future.
Accepted Submissions: Film, TV, Docu-Series, and Web Series.
QC (quality control) automatically starts when we’ve received everything for your title. The process usually takes a week to 30 days. We will email you when it passes QC, or if anything comes up. When your title passes QC, it becomes available in our the global marketplace. From there the streaming services can review and select titles.
We deliver a custom asset package to the streaming service whenever there’s an order. Your title then gets processed by the streaming service. It usually takes another 2 - 4 weeks before it goes live. The selection process and time-frame varies and is out of our control. Anywhere from a few weeks to a few months is normal for a title selection period for platforms.
We will review your content and decide if the quality is align with our distribution standards. If selected, your title will be included on Popcorn Trailer and an opportunity to be seen in the Global Marketplace. We can't make a guarantee that your titles will be selected by any publisher outside of Popcorn Trailer. It's an open marketplace, we don’t control if or when your title will be selected by a curated streaming service. We rely on on relationships with the platform to get you seen.
Non-curated platforms such as Amazon Video and Vimeo on Demand accept all titles.
Whenever we deliver your title to a streaming service and it is selected we will notify you of its acceptance and handle all ingesting.
Each streaming service has their own procedure and time-frame. Some take only a few days, but in most cases please expect anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks.
On rare occasions of a QC fail/reject on the streaming services’ ends, we will first try to eliminate any issues first and redeliver. We will reach out to you if needed.
Popcorn Trailer pays you, the content owner, once a calendar quarter, on or before the last day of the quarter.
