In general, if a film is not released theatrically in the United States and is instead first released on domestic home video, television exploitation does not commence until four to eight months after the video release.  Thereafter, the same general release patterns indicated above typically apply.  If a film premieres on United States pay television, the pay television service is typically licensed for a four to six week exclusive airing period.  The license generally will provide for limited airings made up of five to eight exhibition days with multiple airings permitted on each exhibition day.  The provisions of the license also usually provide for the pay television service to receive subsequent airing periods following a period in which the film can be released on video or sometimes even theatrically and a period during which the film may be broadcast on free television.
