How do I put my movies on iTunes / Hulu / Netflix? 2015-08-02T08:59:52+00:00

Firstly, you need to own the rights to the content you intend to exploit. There are two forms of rights: Video-On-Demand (VOD) where you download to rent; and Electronic Sell Through (EST) where you download to own. Both can be exploited separately or together, and can be territory-specific. You will need a content aggregator to sell your content on either of these platforms, which is where we come in.
