Back in late June, I made an announcement about my appointment as a co-founder of TeebTV.com, a “Netflix-for-Indies” startup based in Indonesia and Malaysia. Ever since then, I’ve been inundated with messages regarding my original post, so I’ve decided to compile a quick introduction and to clarify some common misunderstandings about TeebTV.
What we are NOT –
– We’re not Netflix, nor do we claim any association or partnership with them; “a Netflix-for-Indies” is how we encapsulate what we are, in a catchy soundbite 🙂
– Commissioning new projects
– Buying your content
What we ARE –
– A platform on which you can submit your completed work for us to showcase/air to our audience, primarily in Indonesia/Malaysia and on a wider scale, Southeast Asia and globally. Check out TeebTV.com for examples of some of our current content.
– A startup, with partnerships in place and continually being negotiated, that will allow us to push our content to an ever growing audience.
– Supportive of indie filmmakers – this is our focus and niche – we understand how tough it is to get your work seen, and we’re here to help you do so.
What we seek –
– Content of all kinds, in all genres, from around the world. You can submit them via the Submit Content link at TeebTV.com.
Please note if content is in a language other than English, Indonesian or Malay, we will require subtitles in one of these languages.
What our audience gets –
– Free content in the form of short films, music videos and animations.
– Premium content (accessible via paid subscription and PPV offerings) – this will be rolled out once we’ve built up our content library – these will consist of feature films and TV shows.
What we offer you –
– For both free and premium content – access to our dedicated, regional audience.
– For premium content (ie. TV shows and feature films), a revenue-sharing agreement (contact me for a draft), where you will get paid for every instance of your show viewed by our paying audience.
