IVA RTV's mission is to help musicians promote their music online. For decades now, radio and television have both shown to be by far the best way for an artist to give massive exposure to his music. Despite undertaking new ventures, no other format has even come close to these.
No, IVA TV is not a VOD (video-on-demand) service and you cannot affect the order of video appearance, nor you can choose which video to play. Although there is a video playlist running in the background, IVA TV is a real TV continuously playing and broadcasting music in real time, providing the picture and sound of exceptional quality.
While watching a video or listening to a song, you can press a button and find all the information on the artist currently performing. Other than his name and track title, you can see his photo, cover art, social network pages, links to YouTube, iTunes and Spotify. You can also leave a comment and like the currently playing track.
Although necessary, video-on-demand services don't give artists the right chance to promote their music. Nothing is magical about watching videos uploaded years ago. There is something special about the moment of watching something going on right now, knowing that many others are watching that very same thing at the very same time as you are too. Only the television and radio can provide such a charm.
Yes, you can. First of all, you need to have good songs and good videos. Second, you have to be a copyright owner of the videos and songs that you send, or a copyright owner's authorized representative, and register for using our service as an artist or label. You will then be contacted by one of our representatives to guide you through the rest of the process, which is quite intuitive and user-friendly - and there you go!
IVA RTV is an online music radio and television currently operating on an ads-free basis. No revenues are generated during the play and no revenues are generated by any 3rd-party on the website. The only profit made is that from paying the upfront fees for broadcasting and video and audio promoting on IVA radio & television.
If any ads happen to be implemented into IVA RTV, the company is obligated to notify copyright owners on this update and split the revenues generated by ads between the company and copyright owners accordingly. Any revenue share is solely and exclusively defined by this Agreement between the company and the licensors.
Stats and views, telling where in the world and how many people are currently watching IVA TV or listening to Radio IVA, are available to track in real time as being just a click away. Clients, however, need to login to their IVA RTV accounts in order to gain access to all their reports containing stats and views of all songs and videos of theirs ever uploaded, at any time, without any restriction.
A detailed TV guide is available here, while the radio guide can be found on this page, but this feature is enabled for active users only. Although the guides are regularly updated on a daily basis only, do note that IVA RTV reserves the right to update the TV and radio playlists at any time. We are committed to notifying the clients on any changes of this kind in advance.
No, it is just an option. One can choose to use IVA TV for promotion and host his video(s) somewhere else, for whatever reason it is. Or one can choose to have his videos fully set up on IVA, which includes creating a video channel and usually, both radio and TV promotion.
Yes, it is. Independent artists and labels are only able to make decisions on their own. It is rather unpleasant to give your best to promote someone and then in the middle of the process you are contacted by a major label telling you it's them taking over now, along with all credits.
Yes, it is. Our pricing plan defines the service we provide and the clients (i.e. artists and labels) are guaranteed to get what they pay for. Those who are not served according to the selected plan are guaranteed to be refunded.
Audio videos (i.e. still image) videos are not accepted, because they are not attractive enough - nobody wants to just stare at one picture while watching TV. On the other hand, lyric videos are well accepted and welcome.
