2010 TV NAR bounce back to continue into Q4

14 September 2010

The bounce back in TV NAR (Net Advertising Revenue) now looks set to continue into Q4, resulting in full year- on-year growth of about 12.5%

The bounce back has more than reversed the -11% fall in 2009, although it still leaves TV NAR in 2010 about -5% below pre-recessionary levels in 2007 (nominal prices). Meanwhile, persistent worries about the economy and the impact of government debt reduction measures suggest flat growth in 2011

Much depends in 2012 on the outcome of Ofcom’s review of the airtime minutage quota and distribution rules, where its own commissioned econometric analysis suggests that harmonisation efforts leading to increases in airtime supply could cause large reductions in TV NAR
