Travel by Dart - Season 1 & 2 Viewership
The distribution company representing Travel by Dart, Canamedia, signed a series of contracts with major TV networks worldwide for airing the episodes, starting the summer/fall of 2022. As per estimates, these networks have a cumulative viewership of over 200 million viewers on their programs and VOD (Video-On-Demand) platforms. Here are the details:
The show will be distributed not only in Canada as initially intended, but worldwide, on major networks, as follows:
1. Giant US-nationwide TV network Ovation Journy, available to nearly 50 million subscribers via cable, apps, satellite, and telco systems.
2. SPI International, a major global TV network that has TV travel channels throughout Europe, in the Netherlands, Turkey, Czech Republic, Serbia, Russia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and a few more, with a reach of over 80 million people.
3. Brazil's national TV network Globo TV, which reaches out to 60 million people across the country through its channels.
All three new partners acquired two full seasons of Travel by Dart, with the premiere starting in the summer/fall of 2022 - all having different premiere dates according to each country.
Also, all three networks signed airing licenses for 3 (Ovation, Globo) to 7 years (SPI), so the Travel by Dart series will air over and over every year.
4. In Canada, Travel by Dart airs on The Water Channel (niche-TV network catering to water/island enthusiasts) with a subscription pool of 100,000+ members.
5. We are also in negotiations as you are reading this with a series of airlines, which are interested in airing the show. A list of the airline featuring Travel by dart will be published in September 2022.
During post-production, the show will still attain a wide variety of other international markets, including more non-exclusive distribution rights to the United States, Europe, S.Africa, Australia, and Asian markets via broadcast and online.
MORE GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION:
It is not uncommon for a show like ours designed and built around timeless concepts to allow continual placements and re-run for years after initial production and broadcasting. Once the show is released, it is subject to a much larger market share of buyers and is continually shopped as a package along with further seasons. This is considered an automatic, ongoing increase in value to all advertisers, including your company.
ADDITIONAL BENEFITS - DELIVERABLES
There are many perks of being a Travel by Dart partner from the get-go. From the marketing perspective, how else will help your brand be promoted? Here are a few essential ideas that we commit to take to fruition if we agree on a partnership:
1. In YOUR episode, we will do a custom segment in which the host, Sorin Mihailovici, throws a dart at the world map to determine a future destination for the show. We could set for the dart throw ceremony to be at your resort in a beautiful, visually stunning area. This way, Sorin will mention the location (your hotel), and the whole segment will be filmed there while creatively promoting the resort's beauty.
2. Besides having your brand in the show, we will interview a couple of your representatives (hotel manager, PR person, etc.) at the location and publish that interview on our social media when the time comes. Of course, parts of the interviews will be featured in the episode.
3. You will receive all the important primary footage shot around your location to use for your future marketing purposes.
Our focus is family, both male and female, with slightly higher income: those who are "free-spirited" and seek inspiration, adventure, travel, or philanthropy within their lifestyle, especially after the pandemic. We also cater to the dreamers, the lifestyle advocates and those who genuinely want to see a better planet. Your location is perfect for that.

Ways to get involved
Where do Sorin and Matt reside?
The Travel by Dart founders live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. How much longer…they know yet Sorin was born in Romania and moved to Canada in 2001, while Matt is originally from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
What if the dart hits the ocean?
They’ll be going to the closest land mass. That’s what happened at the first dart throw, when they hit an area in the Arctic ocean, between the North Pole and Svalbard archipelago.
Would they go to any country?
They would love that!! However, there may be countries that might make the access a little harder for North Americans (Syria, North Korea, etc.) so pending the political situation at the time of the dart throw, visas availability, and the time constraint, anything can happen. So far, so good!
Can anybody else throw the dart on their behalf?
It’s not something that Matt and Sorin will offer often, but if the reason is right, it can happen. What does that mean? For example, the boys are planning to do a bus tour across North America to speak and inspire tens of thousands of junior and high school students. From the whole bunch, they might offer one lucky student the chance to throw the dart for them–and maybe even take him/her with them for the trip of a lifetime! Another opportunity to throw the dart for Sorin and Matt is if a significant donation is made towards the cause of the destination.
Will they endorse any sponsor?
Although they have open hearts, Matt and Sorin would like to get involved with companies/sponsors that are genuinely interested in making a real change, not a fake publicity stunt.
How can I help if I am not in a very good financial situation?
Share. Share. Share. That’s free. Post on Facebook and Twitter any of the pages of this website. That’s just as good. Start by liking our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/TravelbyDart.com
When is the next dart throw?
The boys are planning to throw the next dart in the beginning of 2014 on live TV, but that’s pending the viral success of their campaign. Which show? They have a few favorites: Ellen, Jay Leno, Anderson 360, etc. The plan is to shoot a 6 more episodes in the first half of 2014 and release the series in the summer.
Where can I watch the series?
Travel by Dart is in discussions with a few networks as you are reading this. An announcement will be made once all the requirements are met, so keep checking our website. However, due to the viral aspect of its mandate, all the social media support, and the advancement of the new media, Travel by Dart is also considering launching the project as a web series.
I have a personal question for Sorin or Matt. Where should I send it to?
They’ll try to help, but please be reasonable. They won’t be coming to your birthday to strip. Just kidding. Send a message to Sorin@travelbydart.com or Matt@travelbydart.com.
Can I come with them to the next trip?
You can! The Travel by Dart team is planning to bring along a lucky somebody in the next episodes. Type your e-mail address in the box featured on the “Contests” page and you might be the one! We’ll follow up with you.
