APRA undertakes a monitoring service of overseas broadcasts of films and TV series in which APRA members have an interest. Broadcast data is received from the UK based company Essential Television Statistics (ETS) and covers 143 channels in 20 countries throughout Europe and Asia. This information is further supplemented by our own monitoring of foreign television program guides. This information is then used to provide the relevant society in the country concerned with the appropriate cue-sheet data and to ultimately ensure complete and accurate royalty accountings on behalf of members.

If you are aware of any foreign television broadcasts of your works, please submit the information below and e-mail to APRA.
