Type of site
Mobcaster was a US website for crowdfunding television shows. It will also distribute shows once they are produced. Project creators post ideas for pilots. If the pilots get funded, then project creators can post projects for full production. Mobcaster charges 5% of funding, plus 3% for PayPal charges. If a Mobcaster-funded show is picked up by other distribution outlets, Mobcaster holds 15% participation in the show.
The site shut down in September 2013.
