(Effective Date: 04-15-16) NOTES: Sponsorship Benefits are optional and are available per the above schedule but must be confirmed in writing from an officer or director of USA-TN. Not all Sponsors elect to use some or all the Sponsorship Benefits they otherwise may be entitled to have.
Sponsorship and donor funds are used to defray costs of production, distribution, marketing, promotion, and other costs related to USA-TN’s public affairs programming. As a public service, historically USA-TN has donated all its shows to its authorized broadcast partners. When syndicated regionally or nationally, USA-TN may enter into distribution arrangements which require fees from other broadcast entities. Sponsors have the option of not receiving promotional benefits.
Sponsorships paid to USA-TN are tax-deductible as marketing, advertising, promotional, public relations, government affairs, or other business expenses for both non-profit and for-profit organizations.
Direct sponsorship payments should be sent to USA Talk Network, Inc., 2500 North 119th Street, Lafayette, CO 80026-9216. Payments made to USA-TN may be classified as confidential, at the donor’s request.
Sponsorships also are tax-deductible as charitable contributions when made to the Democracy and Media Education Foundation (the “DMEF”). The DMEF is a tax-exempt IRS Section 501(c)(3) public charity, which supports nonpartisan, educational programming.
Underwriting through the DMEF must be done directly with the DMEF (www.DMEFD.org). Send checks to Mr. Matthew R. Silverman, Treasurer, DMEF, 3195 11th Street, Boulder, CO 80304-2527.
There is no limit to how much an Underwriter or Sponsor may contribute. There also are absolutely no restrictions whatsoever regarding which individuals, companies, other organizations or entities of any kind may make contributions. Entities from anywhere in the world are welcome to support USA-TN’s public affairs programming.
In all cases, Sponsors formally acknowledge they have absolutely no editorial control of any USA-TN programming at any time.
Sponsors may be guaranteed a certain number of broadcast equivalents from some combination of the following per program possibilities: (a) KCDO-TV Channel 3 K3 Colorado (up to 200 broadcast equivalents per program naming the Sponsor), (b) live-streaming for any programs (up to 50 equivalents), (c) COMCAST Entertainment Television in Colorado (up to 50 equivalents), (d) COMCAST Utah (up to 50 equivalents), (e) COMCAST Californiain Northern & Central California on the COMCAST Hometown Network (up to 250 equivalents), (f) COMCAST Indiana (up to 100 equivalents), (g) COMCAST Michigan (up to 150 equivalents), (h) Video on Demand services such as COMCAST’s Xfinity on Demand in the previously-listed COMCAST markets (up to 250 equivalents), (i) Other Video on Demand services such as those offered by DirecTV, DISH, Time Warner, AT&T, Verizon, etc., if and when made available (no equivalents at this time); (j) ION Media Networks (up to 250 equivalents, depending on which media markets participate if expanded beyond Colorado), (k) Public Television stations, if any networks, stations or channels are added); (l) Municipal and/or Public Access stations and channels, if any are added; (m) other local, regional and/or national channels, if any are added; (n) Publishers Advantage Initiative participants’ Websites (up to 500 equivalents), (o) Broadcasters Advantage Program participants channels and Websites (up to 500 broadcast equivalents); (p) the www.HarberTV.com and the www.Colorado-Now.com Websites plus associated Websites (up to 50 equivalents), and/or (q) other broadcasters and/or Websites (up to 250 equivalents).
Each individual (single) program is multiplied first by whichever media entities are participating at the time of sponsorship and then by the number of times a program is broadcast or otherwise is made available to calculate its broadcast equivalents to get the final total. Fractional broadcast equivalents will be calculated when segments of programs are made available separately from full-length programs but only if a Sponsor’s promotional benefits are included with the segment.
Broadcast days and times as well as availabilities on participants’ Websites are subject to change at any time by each broadcast or other participating entity and cannot be guaranteed by USA-TN.
In the event more broadcast equivalents occur than were projected at the time of sponsorship, the Sponsor shall have the benefit of all extra broadcast equivalents at no additional charge. This could include entities not listed above.
On-air sponsorship benefits customarily remain for all full uses of every sponsored program. This means programs available for multiple years usually keep the Sponsor’s benefits intact.
SPECIAL NOTE: There is no charge for tickets or seating for USA-TN events. Tickets or admissions are distributed by the organization(s) hosting taping events.
All programs produced by USA-TN are copyrighted and are owned solely by USA-TN and Aaron Harber, with all usage rights reserved at all times.
Thank you for your support!
