As reported in this week's Jack Myers Media Business Report, the national broadcast and cable television marketplace grew 19% to 20% in this year's Upfront market compared to the depressed 2009 market. Broadcast costs-per-thousand growth slightly surpassed cable CPM increases, with demand strong across the board led by automotive, financial, entertainment, consumer packaged goods, health and beauty, and retail. Total broadcast and cable sales in this year's Upfront market, which covers the 2010/2011 TV season that begins in September, were $16.1 billion, which is exactly the total achieved by combined broadcast plus cable sales in the 2008 Upfront. Sales last year totalled $13.5 billion, a decline of nearly 20%. With industry attention and trade pundits constantly focused on digital media and their eroding impact on traditional television, marketers and agencies have clearly focused their attention on media's beachfront property and, through their Upfront spending, have reinforced their commitments to network television. The Upfront is only a partial predictor of national TV health but the growth and vitality of this year's market reinforces perceptions that the medium has regained its position as the advertisers' – and agencies' -- best friend.
Jack Myers Media Business Report projects broadcast network advertising revenue will increase 4.8% in calendar year 2010 and 2.0% in 2011, generating 2011 revenues of $18.0 billion. Cable network ad revenues are projected to increase 7.6% in 2010 and 5.0% in 2011, generating total 2011 revenues of $21.0 billion.
DISH's intentions related to wireless are becoming clearer with its deal with regional wireless carrier nTelos to test a 50Mbps fixed wireless broadband service. DISH could use its spectrum along with that from CLWR (if successful in their acquisition bid) to develop a viable broadband platform. This would help DISH to remain competitive with other MVPDs that increasingly offer broadband packages that enable advanced services such as VOD, home monitoring, cloud storage, etc. This is in line with our belief that DISH will try to transition towards IPTV using its wireless infrastructure.Read More
The results of an open publication of all radio ratings would be new engagement from listeners and advertisers. Right now there is so much industry whining about listener apathy toward radio, positive actions would be appropriate.Read More
