Why Join?

Here is your chance to be a part of an exclusive, influential community of Studio Insiders!




Who makes up the Studio Insiders community?

Studio Insider members are a diverse group of engaged TV viewers, ages 18 or older. Game show, talk show, soap opera, and prime-time TV series viewers are some of our main advisory sub-segments within the community. PlayStation® users and individuals who regularly stream online video are also large parts of the community.

Why did I receive an email invitation to take a Studio Insiders survey?

We invite you to participate in surveys and activities we think you’ll be interested in, based on your responses to the introductory questionnaire and other Studio Insiders surveys you’ve completed.

Are there any prizes for participating in Studio Insider activities?

Of course! Please click here to see our sweepstakes rules and info.

In addition to our standard incentives, we’ve also recently started new giveaways for special Sony Studio Insiders swag! The giveaways are different each month, and details can be found in the most recent Studio Insiders newsletters.

How do I participate in Studio Insider activities?

The easiest way to participate is by simply watching your email for our invitations. We’ll invite you via email to participate in surveys, discussions, and activities we think you’ll be interested in. Invitations will include the topic of the activity or study, the reward or incentive we are offering for completing the study, and the URL where you can access it online or on your mobile phone.

You can also see what activities are currently available by logging onto the Studio Insiders member portal (www.StudioInsiders.com) and clicking on the “Activities” tab.

How frequently will I be invited to share my opinion?

On average, SPT Studio Insiders receive one or two survey invitations each month on a variety of topics. Members may also receive one or two reminder e-mails per survey if they have not responded to the initial invitation.

Members may also receive regular e-mail invitations to participate in a community discussion or activity.

While the Sony Pictures Television Research team issues at least 1 study every month, this doesn’t necessarily mean every member will be invited to participate in a survey each time. This is because, from time to time, only a set number of invitations are issued for certain studies.

How frequently do I have to participate?

Of course, we hope that we can engage you with our regular discussions and surveys. You are under no obligation to participate in any study or activity, however, if over time you do not respond to any communications, we may consider you an inactive member. Inactive members may be removed from the community if they don’t participate in any studies over a period of time. Therefore, please keep in touch with us so we know you are involved with shaping our future.

How does Sony Pictures Television use the Studio Insiders activity results?

Your responses, as well as that of other Studio Insiders are collected and analyzed in aggregate. No one will look at your individual answers to a survey.

Results from each of our community activities are analyzed and presented to stakeholders at Sony Pictures Television and serve as key input into Sony Pictures Television’s strategic decisions and improvement efforts.

After we’ve discussed the results and provided recommendations, we ask our stakeholders to follow up with us and tell us what actions might have been taken as a product of the study results, so we can tell our community members how they affected change. Some stakeholders are better at this than others, though, and it can often take quite some time to get the action results, so we do ask for your patience with our communications.

Your email address, name, and any other personally identifiable information will never be provided to others without your prior written consent.

Will my responses be seen by anyone outside of Sony Pictures Television or will my name, address or email address be given or sold to anyone outside of Sony Pictures Television?

No. The information you share with us will never be given or sold to any individual or outside company. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information.

How do I know you actually received my answers to a study?

At the end of each survey is a "Finish" or "Submit" button. Once you have clicked that button, your answers are stored on our secure server. You will then see a “Thank You” or confirmation page, which indicates that we've received your answers successfully!

Why did I receive a message saying “You are not needed to complete this survey”?

Occasionally we have to set a limit on how many people can participate in certain activities. Sometimes the selection is random; sometimes it is based on your survey response(s). Either way, it can happen to anyone and simply means that more people are completing the survey than we can handle and have to start turning people away. (You are definitely still needed for future surveys!)

How do I change my email address?

You can change or update your email address (and any of your other registration information) by logging into the member portal at www.studioinsiders.com and clicking on the “Update User Info” link.

How do I ‘unsubscribe’ from Sony Pictures Television Studio Insiders?

Your email address, name, and any other personally identifiable information will never be provided to others without your prior written consent.

Can I refer a friend to the Studio Insiders community?

Yes! Anyone is welcome to join Studio Insiders. Just send them a link to the Studio Insiders portal (www.studioinsiders.com) and ask them to click the “Join Now!” button on the login page and then complete the initial survey.

How much does it cost to be a member?

You can reactivate your membership by emailing support@studioinsiders.com with “Membership Re-Activation” in the subject line and ask to re-join the community.

Is my browser compatible with Studio Insider studies?
