TAM woos subscribers with mobile app

MUMBAI: Even as it awaits the verdict of the Delhi High Court on the case filed by its parent body Kantar Market Research, media ratings agency TAM has taken a bold move to cement itself in the industry. A new mobile app has been created to facilitate easy data access by subscribers.

With this first ever unique initiative of launching ‘TAM India’ mobile app, we have fortified our service commitment to the industry with that of anytime anywhere access to data and quicker decision making process for clients. I am especially excited about the different ways in which this mobile app will be of value to the senior management across advertiser, media agency and TV broadcast organisations.”


On a weekly basis, the app will provide insights of different TV channel genres, markets, programmes and new promotables. At any given point in time, it will have data not just for the latest week, but also for the preceding four weeks.


The following is the kind of data that will be available on the app

· Channel Genre: Overall genre wise viewership data and five weeks trends for select genres

· Markets:  Market wise viewership data and five weeks trends for select markets

· New Programme Launches:  List of new programmes launched during the latest week on respective channels
