Press Release announcing VZX TV, a global TV distribution network.
Movie Stream Productions follows developments, trends, and challenges in New Media production and distribution. Trends and opinions are reported in the MSP Insider. These articles are intended to help Independent New Media producers and companies understand the rapidly changing online marketplace, and equip them to produce for online distribution. Movie Stream Productions strongly supports theatrical distribution as first release for many movies, especially for Blockbusters costing $20 million or more. See The New Movie Distribution Paradigm.
We support: 23 Directors, Producers Speak Out Against Premium VOD as well as the theater chains that oppose early release of theatrical to video. None of these venues can do what the other does, and the sequential distribution window for theatrical makes sense. Theater, TV, and Premium Streaming Video are separate distinct markets.
We support producers Truth in Credits, and equitable return on investment for producers.
We support Granito: How to Nail a Dictator, and the quest for global justice. Campaign for Social Justice.
Support 100,000 Jobs Mission for veterans.
Mission: Movie Stream productions creates and will distribute high quality first run episodic series for VOD streaming through several VOD TV distributers (PPV, Internet, satellite, etc.), for any device. It is a market driven organization. Production will be done by Movie Stream Productions, or by production companies authorized by us.
Series are in standard TV format, and made for advertising. As showrunner, we will be credited as executive producer on the production. We do the market research and develop the concept, write the scripts intended for inexpensive production, maintain market awareness, marketability, and determine distribution. We do not develop movies or exclusive content.
Market niche: The target market is for new, premium, recurring (series), content for home theater streaming. We will not largely compete with Hollywood blockbuster style movies in theaters or TV programs in broadcast.
Product niche: Primarily very unique Comedy (sitcom), Romantic Comedy, and Action series. Twenty-two to forty-four minutes in length for 30 and 60 minute shows with commercials. These may be G to R rated, and generally the same standards as TV primetime for mature audiences.
Production/producers: Movie Stream productions will provide high quality series scripts made for production, for production companies with demonstrated experience, that are qualified to make high quality entertainment to the technical specifications required. These productions are intended for rapid shooting, possibly two to three weekends a month, with a lot of it on a sound stage using 3 cameras. We own universal distribution rights and take 20% of profit after expenses.
Technique: We use a development team to develop the series, characters, and episodes.
Finances: We do not do production financing. Producers and directors are responsible for controlling expenses on a production, which can occur anywhere in the world, and responsible for the financial aspects of producing. Distribution costs are minimal so most of the profit goes to the production. Advertising costs, which are essential to success, are significant, but controlled for maximum profit. We provide the scripts at no upfront cost, retain all distribution rights to the production, provide distribution accounting in an open to client environment, and retain a 20% share of the profit.
Distribution outlets: We are able to distribute through PPV, cable and satellite PPV, and through many other venues.
Distribution technology: VOD over Worldwide commercial CDN networks, and satellite and cable.
Advertisers: Please contact us for advertising opportunities.
Writers: Series episodes may be subcontracted to writers on a profit sharing basis. We do not pay directly for scripts. We do not receive spec scripts. Movie Stream productions remains the managing story editor, and will rewrite scripts to meet quality standards, ratings standards, and to improve the story.

Various financial opportunities are being considered, and are pending SEC regulatory rules. If you are interested in investing in a production, we will get you in contact with a producer. We recommend 30% ROI, but this is not always under our control.

How to Stream Movies
Movie streaming enables you to watch movies on any Internet enabled device, such as your computer, TV, game box, set top box, or smart cell phone. Movie streaming is done over an Internet connection. For best service, a 4 Mbps connection is needed. If you are in doubt about your connection, ask your Internet Service Provider.
Devices can be wired or wireless. If your Internet connection slows, most movie providers will lower the picture quality so that you can continue watching the movie even if the picture quality is not as good, or temporarily stop and rebuffer.
Movie streams are not downloads. You watch the movie immediately as it is streamed in real time. The movie is never saved on your device, and huge amounts of memory are not required.
Various devices can "Web enable" your TV. A computer output can be used to provide the signal to your TV. A set top box, such as Boxee and Roku®, can be used.
Other devices provide limited service. A "Smart device" will allow you to connect to Netflix® and a limited number of other services. These devices, such as Smart Blue Ray players and Smart TVs, often promote the manufacturer's own brand of streaming or download service. Roku offers a larger offering. Sony has a device that includes a Web browser with unlimited access to YouTube and other venues.
For the best Web viewing experience on your TV, look for devices that enable you to have a full selection of movie providers. These currently include Google TV, Boxee, Roku, and some Sony devices.

1. Piracy occurs when people use digital cameras to capture movie theater, TV, and computer images, or when theft of film copies, DVD, or downloaded files occur. Movie Stream Productions does not use downloaded files, and the stream is encrypted, preventing the most typical kinds of piracy. Digital camera capture cannot be prevented in any venue, either theater or online, but the picture and sound quality usually isn't high enough to compete with those wanting home theater quality. The actual impact of piracy is debatable. Most US piracy viewing goes to those who weren't going to pay to see the movie anyway, or because it wasn't available. Movie Stream Productions solves the availability problem. But in other countries, such as Spain and China, piracy has had varied but substantial impact. Movie Stream Productions will cooperate fully in any piracy investigation, and will notify authorities if piracy is suspected.
