TV Administration

YOUR NEEDS

You need to collect your music royalties fully in every territory where your programs air around the world. You also need capital for new production. ole can deliver both. 

ole’s complete and accurate royalty collection will add significantly to your annual income and allow you to channel additional revenue into your core business. 

With over $150MM in capital ole is also a source of alternative production financing. We can provide recoupable advances against future royalties, while potentially lowering your headcount commitment in royalty administration. 

As the global administrator for Nelvana, Porchlight, NFB, DHX, Discovery, Peace Arch, Lenz Entertainment, Arcadia, Devine and others, ole specializes in television music administration, and can leverage the audit power that representation of thousands of hours of television properties can provide. 

ole is a creative partner that can help you augment your productions by providing preferred access to our large commercial music library, songwriters and composers, and by assisting in finding multiple uses for your music, including soundtracks, internal music libraries and branded products.
