Music Licensing for Cable Television

BMI Makes It Simple to Use Music in Cable Television


Whether you are a cable network or a cable system, BMI serves you and your viewers by clearing the rights to publicly perform over 18.7 million musical works in its repertoire. BMI represents more than 1.2 million songwriters, composers and publishers that deliver great music for great programming.

With the continued development of cable and satellite delivered programming, along with the evolution of cable-network-branded alternative media, BMI’s role as a music licensing provider is even more important today than it was when the company was founded more than 80 years ago. Operating on a non-profit making basis, BMI provides cable operators and cable network programmers that use music the necessary copyright permission for the right to publicly perform BMI music. BMI’s service saves time and money for businesses that would otherwise have to secure individual permission for every BMI represented work performed on the cable network or cable system.
