Riding high on the success of acquiring some big ticket properties and presenting a calendar of 300-plus days of live blockbuster events, the Neo Sports Network has further strengthened its programming line-up by launching new shows and revamping the existing ones.
Neo Cricket is all geared for the upcoming India-Australia series, which starts from October 1. McCann Erickson, the creative agency for the series, has designed a campaign titled ‘India apni awaaz bacha ke rakho, aa raha hai Australia’. According to sources, the marketing budget has been pegged at around Rs 80-90 million.
The India- South Africa ODI series saw an average TVR of 5.0 per cent, which is a combination of both Neo Cricket and DD1 in the TG CS 4+. Most media planners that exchange4media spoke to felt that these ratings were not as per expectations despite India playing well and Tendulkar scoring a double ton.
