I do not have a streaming platform ready. Can I still register to browse your catalogue and pricing?

Why can’t I click on the “Start A Bundled Deal” button?
If the “Start A Bundled Deal” button is not clickable, it is probably because there are already titles from another Seller in your Bundle Deal Cart. You may either complete the current Bundled Deal by sending out an Offer/ Proposal or clear your cart to start over.
There is also a chance that the seller may only have a single listing at the moment. If that is the case, you can use the Make An Offer/Proposal button to create a deal for a single listing. To view listings from the Seller, you can click on the Seller’s name located just below the IMDB rating.
Can I add listings from a different seller to a Bundled Deal?
