Content Policy Guidelines

All content submitted through Breaking-TV Membership is made available at the sole discretion of Breaking-TV. Additionally, submission of your content doesn't guarantee that your title will be published by a given date or selected for licensing.

All content submitted for publication consideration or published to Breaking-TV (including video assets, cover images, and metadata) must adhere to the following content policy guidelines, which may change over time. Failure to comply with these guidelines will result in removal of your content.

Customers are our number one priority and our goal is to ensure all content published to Breaking-TV continues to meet the same high standards even after it's published.

Breaking-TV conducts regular reviews using customer signals and viewing behavior (like completion rate, unique customer streams, and total hours) to determine which titles are resonating with customers. Content that fails to meet our engagement standards may be subject to removal. Other discretionary decisions regarding the content in our catalog may be made at any time.

We understand you invest a lot in your content and we will provide you with visibility in your Dashboard if your title is removed from the catalog. Unless otherwise indicated, removed titles (or titles not selected for licensing) may not be resubmitted or appealed.
