ABC7 KGO-TV/DT Video duplication and footage licensing
KGO-TV’s footage spans from 1964 to the present day and is sourced from our award-winning ABC7 News programs.
We make some of our footage available for licensing in television programs, documentaries, feature films, educational projects and corporate films.
We also make some of our news available to embed on your website. When you see stories with video on our site, you can click the ‘EMBEDD’ button under the video player to access the code.
Private-use digital files of KGO-TV news reports over the past three months and archived television news footage are generally available for commercial license only.
To request footage: Please email KGO-TV.Video@abc.com the details of your request and provide your name, address, email and phone number. Requests will be processed within two weeks of payment of fees (screener research/production or licensing) and are sent via email via SLINGSHOT.
Review: A KGO-TV video licensing representative will contact you to discuss your project and review your application. Please allow up to two weeks for a response, this service is not staffed daily. We appreciate your patience.
Search: If a search is required to locate images (i.e. specific subjects, dates or content), a search fee (payable in advance via PayPal) is charged.
Screener: For a fee (payable in advance via PayPal), a screener is produced and sent with an on-screen image with an overlaid screener watermark and timecode which is sent electronically via Slingshot.
A license is required for commercial, Internet or shared use of KGO-TV footage. Our images may not be used in connection with the operation, advertising, publicity or promotion of the Program Holder. The license is intended to share our story “as is”, without any implied endorsement by KGO-TV. License fees are determined by the number of seconds/minutes of main footage requested.
