Let Symphonic Distribution do the hard work and deliver your video(s) to the most important video destinations! Upload once, and we’ll deliver it everywhere at once for just $95 per video. You receive 70% of royalties from the monetization of your music videos.
 
Who are our video partners?

VEVO – Your customizable artist VEVO branded Youtube channel.
VEVO hosts music videos from both Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment syndicated on YouTube, with Google and VEVO sharing advertising and similar benefits. As of June 6th, 2018 VEVO will be phasing out elements of their owned and operated platforms and will be placing their focus more on their partnership with YouTube. After this date, their website and mobile app will no longer be available.
 
TIDAL – All mobile and desktop devices.
Tidal is a subscription-based music streaming service that rivals the likes of Spotify but targets audiophiles who want higher-quality, lossless audio. It also offers high-definition music videos and curated editorial content from big names in the music industry including its owner, Jay Z. 

iTUNES – iTunes Store for video sales & downloads as well as Apple Music for Streaming

iTunes is a media player, media library, online radio broadcaster, and mobile device management application developed by Apple Inc. It is used to play, download, and organize digital downloads of music and video (as well as other types of media available on the iTunes Store) on personal computers running the macOS and Microsoft Windows operating systems. The iTunes Store is also available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

AMAZON - Amazon Prime & Amazon Video placement
 
By having your music video on Amazon, you’re on one of the largest and most important video platforms in the world. Symphonic has been able to place music videos, original series, and much more for folks to view if they are Amazon Prime members or Amazon Video subscribers. This is yet another great platform to help promote your music video!
 
NOISEPORN – Noiseporn mobile app/Apple TV and Roku Channel TV apps

Noiseporn is our media brand which showcases music news, interviews, editorials and video content. We've expanded the site to also feature a tremendous amount of video content that can be viewable via an iPhone, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast and more. Every music video we distribute is placed on the platform if it fits the standards of the platform.
 
We're often asked if our Video Distribution service sends to MTV, VH1, Fuse, etc., we don’t have any current partners that offer music videos to television music networks.
 
Many television channels are focused on show programing rather than showing music videos these days. It’s also not a guarantee airplay in that industry while competing with the mainstream artists out there.

Online presence is the more efficient way to go to get your video seen on demand verses television music channels these days.

Pricing

You receive 70% of royalties from the monetization of your music videos on platforms that provide it (like VEVO, iTunes/Apple Music, TIDAL, and Amazon for example). Aside of this, our rates are:

  • $95 per video delivery, to one, two or to all of our video distribution partners.
  • Changes / Updates are $10 per change, per video prior to go live date.
  • Takedowns are $50 per video(s) active / live on video platforms.
  • Re-Uploads after a takedown would be paid at the regular rate.
  • All are paid via Pay Pal.

Go Live Date - This is a reference to your "Release Date". Release date is when your video would be shown on VEVO and other providers.

Other features of our Video Distribution service
 
Artists and Record Labels are in an ever evolving and growing music industry. With over 1 billion unique users each month, YouTube has become one of the leading, if not leading providers for music from around the world. This represents a great opportunity for you, the record label and artist to make revenue off YouTube but more importantly, protect your copyrights! By signing up to this service, you will not only be able to monetize your videos but have a fingerprint created for your audio or visual that will pick up anyone that has used that very same audio or visual in their own productions! 
 
Helping your video get exposure:
We are not a PR firm, BUT on your video’s release day, we will add it to our playlist “Latest Client Music Videos” on our YouTube page. We may also add a client's videos to our social rotations on Twitter and Facebook and tag the artist to help gain exposure if the client is selected as one of our top videos for the month.

Music Video Production
We can produce music videos! These require a bit more planning and can be as involved as building a website or mobile application. If you are interested in getting a music video produced, please feel free to create a ticket and we can discuss to potentially create a custom quote.
