Master orders based on preview tapes are expected to include source tape information and shot descriptions to accompany the time code selections. This will speed up the ordering process and help eliminate dubbing errors.
Network news programs ordering “blind” directly to master under a tight deadline are subject to a 50% “kill” fee, plus all applicable research & dubbing charges.
Master orders will not be released or request authorized until ESPN has received a signed footage licensing agreement.
