Confirming Jayaram’s appointment, RC Venkateish, CEO, Dish TV, said, “We are very pleased to have Dilip Jayaram, with his vast experience in the advertising & sponsorship industry, come on board. With a rapidly growing subscriber base of over 9 million customers, the Dish TV platform offers a unique opportunity for targeted advertising, and we believe this will rapidly develop into a significant revenue stream.

Advertisers are warming up to the potential that is DTH, and allocating separate spends for this medium.
