JTS.TV is a premium digital television network. Our mantra is No Ads, Just The StoryTM. We are committed to bringing you top quality independent shows and films to you, always ad-free. Episodes and films are added weekly. We are a network providing both new and old content. It’s important to understand we model ourselves after premium channels, not repositories of older content.
Quality independent television has no platform currently available to sustain continued production. The ad-based model dominates the sphere, and Internet ads simply do not provide enough revenue to sustain professional programming.
The solution is JTS.TV – Just The Story. JTS.TV brings the premium network model to independent television, allowing viewers an ad-free experience of their favorite, top-notch shows.
By combining an aggressive financial model that rewards quality shows and provides viewers with an ad-free, multi-platform viewing experience, JTS.TV will revolutionize independent television and bring it to the mainstream.
For $3.99 per month, a subscriber gains access to all shows on JTS.TV across multiple viewing platforms, including web, tablet and mobile. With a clear and open financial model where half of all subscription revenue received goes directly to the creators/owners, it is the vision of the network to provide creators with a fair and sustainable partnership, while also ensuring fans that their subscriptions support continued show production.
