CREATE YOUR OWN TV SHOW
TV2 AUSTRALIA is an exciting new lifestyle, entertainment and news channel and is the first non-government owned, Australian television platform to broadcast worldwide from Sydney.
The twist? If you feel that your interests and perspective on life are not represented in today’s media, look no further as TV2 is giving you the opportunity to have YOUR voice, YOUR ideas and YOUR shows seen and heard. We aim to reflect the incredible diversity within our country and it’s up to you to make this happen!
Anyone can broadcast their program on TV2 AUSTRALIA. Anyone with the passion to create and produce interesting and unique content. If you are an individual or a group looking to make waves in the Australian media, then read on and follow the steps below.
A standard 1-hour Time Slot is made up of 50 minutes of programming and 10 minutes of promotion/advertising.
Your program should consist of 12 episodes with each episode being 60, 30 or 15 minutes long. It is up to you to decide how long each episode will be.
Producers can utilize up to 10 minutes within each 1-hour Time Slot for advertising and/or sponsorship to assist in meeting their costs. It is up to the producers to source their own advertisers and/or sponsors and take responsibility for any and all arrangements made with your chosen advertisers and/or sponsors.
BOOKING A TIME SLOT:
Time Slots are allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis. Applications to book a Time Slot should be made directly through the TV2 AUSTRALIA program coordinator, who will discuss available Time Slots and content issues and will then ensure an appropriate broadcast time.
Time Slots are only reserved when the Standard Broadcast Contract has been signed. All applications for Time Slots must be made well in advance of broadcast dates and cancellation or changing of Time Slot bookings will result in a forfeit fee.
By clicking on the links below you can view the Advertising and Sponsorship Application Forms as well as the pricing to assist you in understanding the financial potential of each Time Slot.
1. Producers Registration
To begin the process the producer must fill out the ‘TV2 PRODUCERS REGISTRATION FORM’ for registration, security and administration purposes. This is a onetime free registration and your details need to be continually updated should they change in the future.
2. Time Slot Application Form
Before you begin creating your show, you must apply for a Time Slot and submit your TV show idea including subject, timing, main cast, broadcasting time etc. on ‘TV2 TIME SLOT APPLICATION FORM’. Once your Time Slot Application has been approved by our program coordinator you can continue through the process. There is $100 application fee which we include it on your contract after approval.
3. Sign the Time Slot Contract
This is a simple contract that needs to be signed to secure your Time Slot. There is a fee for each Time Slot and the first payment of your TV show Time Slot needs to be made in order to your booking and allow you to use TV2 Australia’s name or logo for advertising, marketing and casting purposes.
4. Pre- Production
We expect all shows produced to be professional and of a high standard. It is your responsibility to create and produce your show, however, we will happily offer our advice and experience to help keep your work at the required standard to avoid any future issues for you and the people you work with. You must also ensure that all material you wish to broadcast (images, soundtrack, advertising etc.) is cleared by the owner of the material, and complies with the Broadcasting Standards Authority.
5. Marketing for your Fund
This is a big opportunity for you to market your own TV show and enjoy the benefits. You can use the advertising and sponsorship space in your Time Slot to cover your production costs and any remaining fund is profit. The marketing process should be done professionally and securely when dealing with businesses.
When your show plan is finalised and you receive the funds, it is time to begin the production and record your TV show. Producers will be required to use their own equipment such as technical gear, cameras, editing and production facilities. However, we may be able to offer support by putting you in touch with people around Australia who have the necessary skills and facilities to help you produce your show.
7. Post- Production
Once the recording of your show is complete you can now begin putting together all the final elements such as animations, effects, music, narration, etc. and finalise your edit. Make sure you have the rights for all the content you use and deliver the final production in the correct format to us on time.
After receiving your TV show we will check the broadcasting standard. Once approved we will broadcast your show on the dedicated Time Slot. Now all you need to do is relax, enjoy the profits and watch your own show air on TV2 AUSTRALIA.
What now? Time to start planning your next show!
