WHAT IS CTS PRODUCTIONS? 

CTS productions is a multi-faceted media company operating out of Montreal and Toronto. It is a new and exciting entertainment online portal for ARTISTS and MUSIC LOVERS. It provides its members with the ability to listen/upload music, get cast in "in-house" TV shows, blog about your latest club/show adventures, earn money with the CTS Star Reporter and of course get great deals from the artist community with our EXCLUSIVE CUSTOM DESIGNED PRODUCTS (see the artist’s profiles to see what products they have chosen to offer you!).
In a nutshell, CTS exists to do 3 things:
  1. Assist artists with their production, promotional and online merchandising needs!
  2. Provide fans with access to new music, artist products, social media tools and contests!
  3. Develop exciting ways to connect FANS and ARTISTS through our WEBSITE and TV products!

HOW DO I SET-UP AN ACCOUNT?

Like most parts of our website, we’ve kept it simple. All you do is click on CREATE AN ACCOUNT from the homepage, choose what you are (an artist OR a music lover) and fill out the quick form. You’ll receive a WELCOME EMAIL AND YOU’RE DONE. Remember to use your email address ONLY ONCE to avoid computer “snafus”
 

AS A LISTENER, HOW DO I ENJOY THE ONLINE ARTIST CATALOGUE?

Once you have created your FREE profile you will be able to visit the many different artist pages, listen to their music, look at their latest pictures, send them messages, know when their next show is and of course buy their CUSTOM DESIGNED MERCHANDISE. To see the entire list of catalogue products available, you can visit the CATALOGUE PRODUCT LIST section. That list is an overview of what artists may have made available* for you to choose from.
 
*REMEMBER! Each artist decides what they want to sell their fans. If you don’t see a particular product offered by your favorite band, YOU CAN EMAIL THEM and TELL THEM TO ADD IT to their own catalogue. 
 
Once you have decided what product you want to order from the artist’s page, simply use our shopping cart option and order the product(s). Products ordered arrive within 5 to 7 business days depending on the season and ARE FULLY GUARANTEED!
 

I WANT TO DOWNLOAD THE MUSIC I AM LISTENING TO, Can I?

Only if the band has chosen to. Some of the artists just want you to listen to their music, some have opted to let you download it. Its entirely up to them. Be sure to check out each artist’s merchandise section. You will find some very “koolish” custom products from them!
 

I WANT TO LINK MY FACEBOOK AND TWITTER ACCOUNTS TO CTS, what do I do?

Open a second WINDOWS or SAFARI browser page next to this one and OPEN YOUR FACEBOOK or TWITTER account. Make sure to KEEP YOUR CTS PROFILE OPEN and then select what you want to link! Our system will securely take care of linking both your accounts. After that you will be able to update your status and share with your friends all of what you do on CTS live and instantly.
 

I AM INTERESTED IN APPLYING TO JOIN THE CAST OF ONE OF THE TELEVISION SERIES?

That’s great. Submissions are accepted year round, through our website. Stay tuned to show updates to find out when and where the next tapings are taking place. Keep in mind that our office casting staff will only contact you if they feel you have the requirements to be part of any upcoming show. If you feel your application may have fallen through the cracks, we suggest you resend it.
