Work with Other Distributors
Your title will be included on Popcorn Trailer platforms (Web, Mobile, Amazon Prime, Roku - TBD, Fire TV - TBD). We will alert you if other options are available.
Popcorn Trailer - QC (quality control) automatically starts when we’ve received everything for your title. The process usually takes a week to 30 days to go live on popcorntrailer.com. 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 you'll be sent a link to your video page so you can promote it.
Third Party Platforms - If you choose to participate, we deliver a custom asset package to streaming services whenever there’s an order to be included on our other channels for example Amazon Prime. 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 third party publishers 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.
Popcorn Trailer Platforms - 30 - 60 days
Third Party Platforms - 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. Payment is sent 15 days after the quarter ends. We only send payments when a $100 threshold is met.
