When will my project be on TELUS Optik TV and online?

Your project must be delivered to STORYHIVE by the deadline indicated in your grant agreement. Projects will then be encoded and uploaded to TELUS Optik TV (typically within a few weeks of delivery). Projects funded by STORYHIVE must be delivered and available on TELUS Optik TV within the same broadcast year they are funded. 

Your project will officially launch on TELUS Optik TV On Demandâ„¢ and the STORYHIVE YouTube channel approximately one year after the final delivery date indicated on your grant agreement, with the exception of Podcast Edition which will launch approximately one month after final delivery.

This will give you the opportunity to pursue a festival run and other avenues for distribution if you wish to.
