Smaller transmitters are frequently financially not able to offer around the clock their own program. In order to fill the transmitting time nevertheless with attractive transmissions, these take over partially the program of an appropriate coat program offerer.
There are anonymous coat programs, by the listener and/or. Spectators are in particular not identifiable. Radio moderators of these offerers start for example the Jingles of the customers of the coat program far, so that the listeners have the impression to hear a regional transmitter. Or it is spoken neutrally of “our transmitter”, instead of calling the transmission area or the transmitter name. This principle e.g. becomes. in Germany with the restaurant radios in North Rhine-Westphalia by the coat program offerer radio North-Rhine/Westphalia, in Saxonia by the offerer SLP and in Bavaria by the offerer BLR practices.
Alternatively also the assumption of a program is possible, whatever over other spreading ways than independent transmitter arises. In the German Land of the Federal Republic Brandenburg practices this BB radio as a coat program offerer for its local partners. The restaurant TV transmitter TV meadow-flows sends daily a half hour and spreads in the remaining time the also supraregional sending television station RTL.
In the USA many regional television stations function as Affiliates of television network. The concept here used is the exact counterpart to coat programs: the Affiliates is responsible for their master program, only in the Prime Time the program placed from the networks to the order is taken over.
An alternative possibility of the assumption of contents represents the so-called content Syndication , these forms in the USA the source of main program of the master program of the network Affiliates.
