Hollywood Video (Torrent/Video Rental) [OPEN]

Postby Hollywood Video State » Sat Jul 20, 2019 8:55 am

We've announced that we are now opening more stores through our Camel Empire location, and theming them based off that. Obviously, we will be building stores. However, we'll also offer a legal torrent-based service for those who don't like renting from a store.

Stores


Image
This is our main option, for most purposes. This will work especially well with PT 1980s-2000s nations, as the original Hollywood Video did. Any movie can be rented from this store, provided they are submitted beforehand. Also, rental is 5 days without late fees. After 5 days, we charge in-store credit so that your wallet doesn't get wasted. All locations also have Game Crazy, which means that games can be rented too.

Torrents


Image
Why pirate your torrents when you can get them legally? Many free movies are on the Hollywood Video torrent service, as well as many premium movies you cannot get on Netflix. Plus, the nature of torrenting means that you get to keep your movies forever. With Netflix, you lose your movies once your subscription expires. You can also use the Game Crazy subsection to play any game DRM-free, including many quality games from quality developers and open source games. You can sign up to any country where the service is available, and all movies are just the price of a rental at the video store. Great for MT and PMT nations, as well as FT nations. It's like a video store, but reinvented for the digital age.

The Confederate Empire of West Phoenicia is made up of 13 nations that have unified.
West Phoenicia is the main nation whichhas 50 city-states. We would like each city-state to have Hollywood Video Store, and one each for other nations.
After 6-12 months if seen to be popular, we will increase the number of stores Empire Wide.

In regards to the Torrent service would that be a site West Phoenicians would need to sign up for, or something that can be offered by the West Phoenician Television networks?

OK, we'll set it up. Also, the TV networks can offer the torrents (in that case, all paid-for movies are free.). However, there's also the option of signing up.

Shaft (2019) has been released today, and it's EXTREMELY popular. Maybe Mediaversity's poor treatment of the film did a Streisand Effect, but whatever the reason, it's the most Torrented AND bought (video store) movie in the first day. We've even gained a LOT of subscriptions to our Torrent service due to Shaft.

Recently, we've been having some Game Crazy torrent theft issues. We have been reporting them to nearby scene groups (there are conspiracies that we have direct access to the Warez Scene, but we can neither confirm nor deny this.), so that the Repackers will be stopped (as the repackers in question are notorious for violating scene standards with inferior releases).

Due to this, all games are now 50% off until the end of January.

Nation name: Great Bountiful Empire of the United Turtles, Mushrooms, and Men of TurtleShroom

Media: TV [X] | Movie [X] | Game [X] | Other/Misc. [X]

Number of locations (OPTIONAL; only used if "Video Store" is selected):
TURTLESHROOMERS ARE HUNGRY FOR FILM!

You are free to build any store you like, anywhere. However, the Congressional Duma is considering automatically clearing and removing paperwork issues for your initial two hundred stores, with merit-based PAYE expansion for five hundred more.

In addition, the Kingfish Parish is also offering to afford tax breaks if you locate a regional headquarters and add stores. Several private fiefs, special zones, company towns, and small hamlets are clamoring for your investment as well and will be willing to negotiate bonuses for it!


Tax Rate:
Varies extensively, but there is no tariff on foreign films at this time.
The Imperial Constitution caps sales tax at ten percent maximum on the imperial level, but sets it to a floating index based on the budget. At times, you will collect no sales tax. Other times, you will collect less than ten percent. The Crown is obligated to distribute notifications in advance to you at no charge.

Individual Parishes, fiefs, Free Cities, noblemen, and other administrative divisions of government obviously reserve the right to issue further VAT taxes as they so by law direct.


Comments:
    By operating in TurtleShroom, you agree to submit to the laws of the Holiness Board of Censors.
  • The Board will affix a rating (if one has not already been set) for all films offered in your stores. Every medium you import and every movie you stock must be presented to the Board of Censors. This will be performed at no charge to you.
  • You are required by law to refuse to sell or rent any media with certain ratings in accordance with the laws of that rating.
  • You are required to withhold any film that has not been screened and rated. The Board will perform its duties at no charge to you. All shipping required will be paid for.
  • The Board of Censors reserves the right to edit and alter films to remove cursing, sex, and other immoral content. You are compelled by law to offer these edited versions, where they exist.

    Willing, voluntary, and intentional failure to obey these laws will result in your company's expulsion from TurtleShroom and punitive seizure of its assets.

Expect to stock the film in both DVD and VHS.

TurtleShroom's infrastructure is just now preparing for the reintroduction of the Internet. This will take some time and, when completed, will only be available on dial-up.

If your institution plans to create films or becoming a distributor for laymen's films, consider applying for the Board of Censors' Honorable Servants of Film and Art Incentive, in which the Board of Censors pays you for collecting and presenting homemade films for personal share.

Finally, note that you are also allowed to offer any other medium for sale or rent, including but not limited to video games and computer software. Note that TurtleShroomian hardware is dated and the most common video games derived from foreign sources are De-makes. The conversion of modern games to older media, or reducing them to run on older hardware is an industry worth tens of billions of Skillets.

You are free to sell games in any way you see fit, including selling them for modern consoles, but be warned that it is not profitable without affixing high prices to them.

As with films, all media sold, including video games, are subject to Board of Censors review and editing, which you are required to honor.

Approved, but censors will ONLY apply to your country. We also make Hollywood Video Originals under "FLPC" [short for "Fairlight Picture Company"], with its first film being "the Raid". We will set up a different division just for your country, where TurtleShroomian films are censored. It'll have the same name, the difference being what it offers. Since we noticed that you don't really have the internet, we will thus not offer torrents. Of course, we'll open 700 stores throughout the country. We'll mostly take up areas that don't have buildings as of this post, but we approve.
Also, the censors might be time-consuming and many movies won't be released in the country. Still, we'll do the best we can to comply.

That is correct. You will not censor your own films. We will do so. Release the film unredacted and we will do the rest for you. If it is neccesary to edit scenes or change the plot to remove obscenity or other indecency, you reserve the right, as a domestic producer, to suggest an alternative to the scene or offense. (This is not normally required, as most scenes or offenses can simply be cut out.)

There is no need to do this unless you seek to do it. Open and film as you will. The finished product is all the state cares about, unless actors are fornicating or imitating sex scenes. Films in TurtleShroom are censored by the state, not by individual companies.

You do not censor your own films in TurtleShroom unless you want to on your own. The Board of Censors does this for you, at no charge to you. Releasing movies is your job. Screening movies is ours. Imperial law does not allow any private entity to censor and release videos in-house; they must be presented to the Board of Censors.

When a film is published, only one copy is allowed to exist until it is reviewed. The original master copy, if it is foreign, is sent back to the producer's homeland or headquarters. Original master copies for domestic films are either destroyed, sealed in a vault, or sent to a foreign recipient, depending on the content and depending on negotiations with the producer.

The Holiness Board censors films by watching the entire movie themselves and logging any obscenity, immoral action, or other content. Then, each portion is edited.

One last warning: some films you may have in your library that are spectacularly graphic may be Capital Films, which hold the XXX designation. This includes films that may be legal in other countries, but it is also the category for child pornography and other graphic, violent porn. All pornography is illegal in TurtleShroom.

The most famous example of a Capital Film that is legal (for some Satanic reason) is the "Human Centipede" series. As with every distributor, the list of films rated "U" (Unholy, banned for distribution) and up have already been provided to you.

If you have any further comments, questions, or if you need help with media compliance, you can call the Board of Censors at their official number, attached herein, or fax them at the attached number herein.

God bless you.

Any films illegal in your country will not be distributed there, but that's only because of the law. We'll try to follow it, even though we are a foreign company (which means we'll send ONE of our master copies, the one meant for the country, for review.). We'll attempt to follow it to the best of our abilities. That means we will not distribute ANY films with a U rating or above, and will keep them out of the country at all costs. It'll be MUCH easier because we're mostly a foreign film distributor, and we will limit it to the extent required by law.
