SportBusiness Group managing director Ben Crawford said: "We are impressed by's ability to help us reach sports marketing and broadcast professionals in India, and the south-east and Asian regions, through its online publications such as The TV Linx Reporter, The Ad Linx Reporter, and the website" 

Says Indian Television Dot Com CEO Anil Wanvari: "While it is indeed true that cricket as a sport generates more viewership than any other in India, the ratings of the just concluded Fifa World Cup shows that other sports too are gaining in popularity. Additionally, India's spirited showing in the just-concluded Commonwealth Games and the hype around them makes us buoyant that Indian sport is on the ascent."

He adds: "Indian sport is undergoing a metamorphosis and it is increasingly being treated like a business. We believe that marketing managers in companies which are increasingly backing sport such as LG Electronics, Hero Honda, Brittania, MRF, along with media managers in agencies which handle their brands, and television channels which air these sports events can benefit tremendously from SBG's view on the future of the sports broadcasting rights. Millions of dollars are backing various sports today. And getting an independent view helps in taking better decisions."
