About the channel
Website: http://www.tvmychannel.com/
My TV is an independent British entertainment channel available on Sky 219. Our daily schedule features fashion, gastronomy, music, films, shows and sports.

How to submit:
Please send a DVD (only DVD, we do not accept tapes) with your project and the release form signed to the follow adress:
My TV Channel
Super Shorts – Production
199-201 Seven Sisters Road
London – UK

About the release form (Please contact us at production@tvmychannel.com)
This is a simple authorization as it is your work and you have to give us broadcast permission. You remain with all content copyright and there is no restriction regarding submitting the same material to film festivals.

Next step:
Our production will contact the producers to confirm if the submission was successful.

FAQ:

1) Will I still be able to send my work to other events and festivals?
Yes. We do not require exclusivity regarding festivals and events premieres. All producer / filmmakers are free to submit to as many as they feel doing so.

2) Will I be notified when my work will be shown on My TV?
Once you know your production has been approved, you can check My TV schedule available online at www.tvmychannel.com/tvschedule.html. The schedule is updated every Friday.

3) What else do I need to send?
We definitely need a synopsis about what is the production about. We also need warning in case of use of strong scenes, sexual or religious reference as it may affect the slot time where the film will be broadcast due OFCOM regulations.
If the producer/filmmaker send a press release or photos about the production we may use it to promote throughout or channels (website, newsletter and PR) but we can’t guarantee any exposure and pictures will not be returned.

4) When you deconstruct my work to use for channel publicity, will I be credited for my work?
If used only random scenes to promote the programs it won’t be credited individually. However when using pictures for printed material it will be credited.
