Royalty information

Royalties are based on how and where your titles are offered through Breaking-TV.

Please refer to the Digital Video License Agreement for complete information. The following standard royalty payments apply:

Buy and Rent

Content providers receive 50% of net revenue. If you offer a season for purchase, customers who have purchased one or more episodes may be able to purchase the season for a discounted price. The season price is reduced by the amount the customer has already spent on previous episodes. You will receive 50% of net revenue for the episode and season purchases.

We issue payments approximately 90 days after the end of the month in which the revenue event occurred. You will receive payment from Breaking-TV via paypal funds transfer unless electronic funds transfer is not available in your location, in which case you will receive payment by wire transfer. If you receive payment via wire transfer, Breaking-TV may withhold payment until you have reached a minimum threshold in accrued license fees for the applicable local marketplace. The minimum threshold for wire transfers are below.

Wire Threshold: Breaking-TV  £50

If your royalty earnings fall below the threshold for wire payments, we will keep a running total and issue payment after the amount exceeds the minimum threshold. Your payment occurs sixty days after the end of the month in which your royalties meet the threshold. When converting local royalty earnings to a different currency, the amount to be paid after conversion must meet the minimum amount banks will allow us to send.

We support electronic payments in the locations listed below. We’re actively expanding the list and will update this information when changes occur.

Banking information

We electronically pay royalties to the bank account information you provide via Paypal unless stated otherwise. 

We issue payments approximately 90 days after the end of the month in which the revenue event occurred.

Customers pay in their local currencies, but we pay your royalties in the default currency of your bank account’s location (except Brazil).

For example, if your bank account is in Germany, and a customer in the United States purchases one of your titles, the customer’s US Dollars payment is converted to Euros and deposited as Euros in your German bank account. If you want to receive payment in other currencies, multiple bank and account options are available. Please note payments into Brazilian bank accounts will be made in marketplace currency (e.g., USD from the US, or Euro from DE) via Wire, not in BRL.

When converting local royalty earnings to a different currency for an EFT payment, the amount to be paid after conversion must meet the minimum amount your indicated bank will allow us to send. This amount varies by institution and location. However, once the minimum amount is reached, you will be paid electronically for the full amount accrued.

Important: You can add titles after creating your account, but payment and banking information must be completed before titles are published.

Supported bank locations

Unless stated otherwise all payment will be process by PayPal. All payments are made through Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or wire transfer. We support electronic payments in the locations listed below. We’re actively adding new locations and update this information when changes occur. If your bank isn't in one of these locations, you must create an account with a bank located in one of these supported countries/regions.

We currently can't support electronic payments through intermediary accounts. Some banks outside of the United States might require an intermediary account for money transfers. An intermediary bank is a third-party bank used by the beneficiary bank to facilitate international transfer and settlement of funds. A common sign that you're using an intermediary account is when all customers of a bank use the same IBAN. Your bank can advise if your bank details are for an intermediary account. If your account is using an intermediary account, please use a non-intermediary bank account for direct deposit.
