Affiliate Rights vs. Transport Rights

— Written by Emily Call, MVS

Do you know the difference between affiliate rights and transport rights? I didn’t until I started working here! National transport rights are what MVS has acquired to transport signal from programmers to customers. We can transport to dedicated POP (point of presence) locations or fiber mutual meet points, on a national scale. You know what sounds even crazier? This signal originates from a shared headend, in rural Wisconsin! Crazy, yet so powerful! So if you have fiber, we can connect to you, and you too can become part of our story. And you can find our story, coming soon to our website!

On the other side, affiliate distribution rights are what allows a company, such as a telephone company, an internet provider, an apartment owner, a University, municipality, or other entity, to provide TV packages to end users. Does this sound overwhelming? Don’t worry! We can navigate all of this for you so you don’t have to! MVS has amazing strategic partners in the industry that can acquire these affiliate distributions rights on your behalf and work with you through the whole process. Learn more about this process soon on our website!
