Says Sunder Aaron, Country Head, AXN India, "It shows that in the widest television universe that is reported, AXN is the strongest English brand on television India-wide. While advertisers may be buying air-time on English channels based on their primary Sec A & B target audience, on AXN they will also be getting the best possible reach that an English channel in India can offer. "

Many of AXN's reality based programs scored well according to the TAM Study. Ultimate Guinness World, which has a long association with India, obviously has not gotten old & Ripley's Believe It Or Not- both are shows whose appeal cuts across all audiences. AXN's Fight Nights - a new band started this year boasts of The Ultimate Fighter, a serious martial arts reality show that has a cult following internationally and now as per TAM's data, has a loyal fan base in India as well.

While the reality action shows tend to drive reach, the strength of the channel lies in Top rated international series. Handpicked shows like Las Vegas, which premiered last year; a drama based on the action packed lives of the people behind a casino wins the silver as per TAM's ratings.

AXN's award winning drama series - House - an irreverent series based on a genius doctor and Numb3rs - an investigative series that uses innovative methods to solve crimes, are both amongst the top 15. This indicates a change of viewing habits from sitcoms to fast paced AXN entertainment, shows that AXN's action genre is expanding exponentially.
