Whether you are a Cable System with local origination or a Cable Network delivering network programming, BMI serves you and your viewers by clearing the rights to publicly perform 15 million musical works in its repertoire. BMI represents more than 1 million songwriters, composers and publishers that deliver great music for great programming.
With the development of cable and satellite delivered programming, BMI’s role as a music licensing provider becomes even more important today than it was when the company was founded 75 years ago. Operating on a non-profit making basis, BMI provides cable operators and programmers that use music an efficient, competitive licensing mechanism for the right to publicly perform the music. BMI’s service saves time and money for businesses that would otherwise have to secure individual permission for every BMI represented work that they play.
