I've had a few TV sales in the past - mostly in Japan - but never to the BBC.

Yesterday three popped up, same license details but apparently unconnected subject matter.

Has anyone else had a similar pleasant surprise this week? Or have people had sales in the past and I've just been unlucky until now?

Phil, I had a TV sale to Germany recently, and this one. Your post made me check the usage details.  I assumed it was a BBC sale as the image was of an actor on

the set of a BBC sitcom: usage says Channel 4. Strange.

That's exactly the details of my three - could this be a welcome new customer?

I had one on the 18th August to the BBC, not of a flower though - a politician.

 

I've had TV sales before but for ITV.

If you look through the images found threads, you'll find some more.

Personally I spotted some on University Challenge.

When I see Alamy in the captions it's too late, because we cannot easily view a BBC program after it's been aired.

Some of the BBC magazines use Alamy as well.

For me no BBC, but quite a few Japanese and Worldwide (Is it 1984 yet?)

I've had only Japan and Worldwide TV licenses, but "the Beeb" is always welcome.

Good to see they're actually paying for images ;)

Maybe they are staring to realise all the freebies sent in by viewers are worth exactly what they cost :ph34r:

I must start watching University Challenge. Although the images sold were Natalie Bennett, Nelson's Column and a street sign in Prague - I'd love to know where they'd been used.

3/4 sales each year for over 250 dollars each but not thro Alamy.  look forward to a price increase now that Alamy are supplying although the licence conditions are as generous as ever!!

Have had a couple of Alamy images in the Countryfile mag a few years ago, and one on bbc.com. Have also had a request from the BBC to use one of my images on Flickr free of charge - I declined of course.

What are BBC sales rates like? Do you think they're screwing the Alamy price system down to the very basic - or are they respectable amounts?

 

Rgds,

An indication is OK, surely? We'd get the message if he said awful, fair, good or Mailonline.

That's about in line with what the Japanese TV are paying.

edit: however it's usually distribution.

If you mean a TV licence to own a TV set in the UK, £145.50/year.

What's a tv license going for?

 

My worldwide and Japan TV licenses on Alamy have ranged from $115 to $250.

 

Don't know what the price calculator says. It tends to be creative fiction, unfortunately.

Well, fingers crossed, let's see what happens on 18th September.
