ISA-AAAI-IBF to meet TAM on Oct 11 on data suspension

The pressure on TAM Media Research to suspend television ratings data on account of digitisation rollout in the four metros from November 1, 2012 continues.

Even as broadcasters are hoping for TV ratings data to be suspended, advertisers have taken a serious stand against the suggestion and there are conversations already for a possible advertising pullout from channels if TV data reporting is suspended.

To arrive at a common consensus from all industry stakeholders, TAM Media Research is meeting IBF (Indian Broadcasting Foundation), ISA (Indian Society of Advertisers) and AAAI (Advertising Agencies Association of India) on October 11, 2012.

A senior broadcast resource explained, “Given TAM’s sample size, data reporting in the four markets can lead to an inaccurate readership figure in a digitised environment. And that would lead to further chaos. Digitisation is very important, as that is the only way to grow the industry. Many broadcasters would have to the plug off their signals in non-digitised homes for digitisation to happen. And this can impact viewership. All industry stakeholders should be sensitive towards the industry’s requirement right now.”
