Getting Profitable Television Contracts


Recommended Posts

I've been playing this game for a long time now, and up to this point I have not successfully secured a TV deal that has actually done anything but lose my company money. Does anyone have any tips for getting a TV deal that is anything but a 100%/100% split to the network?

 

I have gotten TV deals almost exclusively at regional which may be part of the problem. I have also tried signing the crap deal in the hopes that at the renewal negotiation I can get a better deal, but to no avail.

 

Anybody have any tips?

Unless you have a ton of cash, don't go for TV that will cost you money. And if the deal isn't going to be very favourable, only sign on for one season.

 

Basically, until you're in a position to dictate terms, don't tie yourself down. Having a TV deal at Regional that costs you money is one more burden to add to the costs you'll incur when your newfound popularity lands you at Cult, and all that's entailed with that growth spurt.

Basically, at Regional you should be lucky for any network to even be negotiating with you. TV isn't profitable until Cult+ when you have huge popularity to make it worthwhile to the network to absorb some of the cost/lose some profit.

 

Unless something weird happens, at regional you should focus on getting a PPV deal first to rake in the big bucks and then look at TV.
