Distribution

Our Quest for the Treasures

TV Alliance is specialised in the distribution of television programs. This is not an easy business, as it is hardly possible for independent distributors to access the latest Blockbuster movies. Therefore one needs to be innovative and fast.

In between thousands of hours of television programs which are produced every year one can find some true treasures. The enormous program output is impossible to oversee for most tv stations. We speak of treasures in terms of content and quality, sometimes in an intellectual sense and for a small target audience only. However, sometimes these wonderful programs make sense for a broadcaster. We love these programs as this is simply fantastic television for people with brain and intellectual aspiration.

And – of course mostly wanted – there are a few treasures in the market in terms of commercial aspects. Generating top ratings for reasonable costs.

We try to find both kind of “treasures” for our clients.

Our Distribution Philosophy

We are doing our homework.

We always identify the exact needs of our clients and don’t waste their time by drowning them with hundreds of screeners. We consider the needs of our clients today, but we are also thinking about their requirements of tomorrow.

Dubbing

Dubbing Documentaries is our Thing. And We Have Over 20 Years of Experience.

We are TV producers and therefore the last step of the whole production process is making a German language version.

As a service provider we have been working with every big German TV station in this segment for over 20 years, not only providing German language versions.

For a big client we did not only dub older BBC-productions, but also added a fresh design and renewed the material optically.

This way, we brought the program titles up-to-date and they were broadcasted successfully – with very small procurement costs.

We have experience in all genres: science, technology, nature, wildlife, history, current affairs, adventure, fashion, travel, and more.

Best Voice Actors and Writers.

Making a good German language version is not exactly rocket science, but:

Choosing the right voice actors and having really good writers is extremely important. We only work with the best voice actors and have a permanent team of writers.

But who are “the best voice actors”?

To us, they are trained actors and actresses with vivid voices, who provide fast and first-rate performances in the studio. This way, we, as well as our clients, will save costs without any loss in quality.

In terms of content, we research all the facts properly and translate correctly.

Best Quality for a Reasonable Price.

Often the price for one hour of a German language version of a documentary remains a big secret.

We will tell you right away:

Our price for dubbing one hour of documentary material is 3,500 euros.

You can plan with this price, and so can we. Providing superior quality, this price includes voice actors, scripts, technical equipment and simple title editing.
