With Filmhub you are in control of your title and determine what rights are made available for licensing. This is accomplished through the Rights Management section for each title.
The default setting for Available Rights is "All rights worldwide, immediately, in perpetuity." With this setting, your title has no limitations on availability. If there are any limitations, these are referred to as "Managed Rights."
Filmhub always recommends leaving rights periods open and not setting a sunset date. It makes your title more likely to get picked up by a Channel and you can always takedown a title at any time by emailing support *at* filmhub *dot* com.
If you ever need to update your Managed Rights after you Submit your title. Message support *at* filmhub *dot* com with the necessary updates. This includes updating us whenever you deliver your title to Channels outside of working with Filmhub.
Managed rights may be limited by:
License Type (AVOD, SVOD, TVOD)
Each Managed right may have a start date ("Available from") and/or end date ("Available to").
Set Channels that Cannot License your Title
If you have already licensed your title to a Channel you can let us know using the "Already live at" option. If the channel does not provide a URL, just enter the Channel's main URL such as http://amazon.com. You should enter all locations your film is already distributed to in order to make sure if we later add that Channel, we will not attempt to distribute it to them.
Managed Rights may be combined to cover a variety of different rights scenarios. Some examples follow:
Set a future available date
Add all license types, select "worldwide", all languages, and add an "available from" date.
With this setting, your title won't be available until after the specified date. This allows you to start the submission process before rights fall back to you. Please note that this is not a release date. We don't guarantee a single release date across multiple channels.
