The Screening Room is an online community where members can share their thoughts about film and TV with each other. Every activity completed provides a chance to win great cash prizes at the end of the month.
The Screening Room is run by Harris Interactive on behalf of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment in the UK. The responses to the surveys and quizzes in the community are used by Sony to plan their film releases on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download.
To be eligible to participate in The Screening Room community you will need to complete an initial survey that details your general shopping behavior and some demographic questions to help us classify your answers. Once this survey has been completed you will become eligible to participate. You will find this registration survey if you go to the "Join" page of this Website.

For each study, you will receive an invitation by email to participate. The community research will be conducted on the Web.

The survey link will also appear on the community website usually in "What's going on?" page.
Not necessarily. We will do our best to identify studies that look like a match based on your profile, but our sponsoring clients may include criteria which is not part of our membership information. In these cases, the only way to know if you qualify will be to ask you up front in the survey. In cases when your household does not fit the criteria, we will try and notify you quickly and release you from completing any more of that survey.
On average, you will be sent a survey invitation about one to four times per month. There will also be new QuickPolls posted to the site every week or two, as well as occasional new discussion forums for you to participate in.
You are welcome to take part in as many surveys and discussion forums as you like.
On average, our surveys are approximately 10-15 minutes; however, some can be as short as 5 minutes and others can be longer than 15 minutes. All surveys and activities are completely voluntary and we let you know the approximate length of the survey in the invitation so you can plan accordingly. As well, surveys can be stopped and restarted later from where you left off if you are in a hurry.
