A Per Program license could reduce licensing fees dramatically

With the Per Program licenses available from ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC, television broadcasters could realize substantial savings compared to Blanket license fees. Local television stations with local news earn approximately 60% of their revenue from local news. Well over 90% of the music played during local broadcasts are available directly from the composer. By clearing these performances at the source, broadcasters could elect the Per Program license offered by the PRO’s and reduce licensing fees dramatically. In addition, the ABC, CBS and NBC networks have separate license agreements with PRO’s, and as a result, affiliates save even more.
