How does the MPLC Public Performance License for TV and Movies work in practice?

MPLC Public Performance Licenses are very affordable, easy to buy and can be implemented immediately.
You pay us a simple, affordable annual fee based on the type and size of your site, location or business.
You do not need to report to us, or anyone else, which TV or movies that you show. You are free to air any licensed program at any time.
You can use any legal media when playing our rightsholders’ and films. This includes broadcast television, DVD’s, satellite, cable TV channels or content streamed from the internet or a provider. – if it is intended to be “for personal private use only,” it can be used for public performance with the MPLC license. When you have an MPLC Public Performance License, that removes the “personal private use” restriction from the media that you use.
The only restrictions are that you cannot charge an admission fee to watch movies or and you cannot advertise the fact that you are showing a specific film or show (or include a description that identifies a specific film or show) to anyone other than a closed group of the patrons of your licensed premises. Ads on public facing social media pages or Web sites, or any other media that is accessible to the general public are not allowed.
If you want to charge an admission fee or promote the showing of a specific film or show in a more public way then you need a “title by title license”. We do not provide these but we can provide you with details of other companies who do, just ask us.
