MUMBAI: Whatever may be the scene in C&S homes, in the all-India market Doordarshan rules. It has been no different for the ongoing ICC World Cup 2003.



For the first three cricket World Cup 2003 matches, DD delivered consistently higher viewership as compared to MAX in the all homes segment, TAM data released by Nimbus says.



A closer look at the ratings shows that DD hasn't fared well in South India and metros in all India homes. It also fails to make a dent in the C&S households whereas MAX has made gains even in the all-India home markets.



Nimbus Communications senior vice president - TV and sports Sunil Manocha was quoted in a press release as saying: "So far all our estimates and projections in terms of the audience shares and our revenue targets have been right. With the combined advantages of great and innovative scheduling, clear focus on cricket and a world class feed; Doordarshan is all set to emerge the clear winner on ratings and revenues in this cricket World Cup."

The Nimbus release states that DD's plans for telecasting the 16 'Big Gun' live matches including all India matches and a match every weekend, has paid rich dividends in all the key markets like Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Eastern India.



- Doordarshan fares well as compared to the satellite channel in the prosperous markets of Maharashtra, UP, MP, Punjab and Gujarat, say Nimbus officials. However, TAM data says that DD is behind in the Gujarat market.
