Republic Media Network continues its winning streak in English & Bangla market

The broadcaster has 39.3% and 27.4% market share in English and Bangla space, respectively.

Mumbai: Republic Media Network's Republic TV and Republic Bangla have emerged in the pole position, as per the recent Broadcast Audience Research Council (Barc) news rating. With this, the broadcaster claims to establish an undisputed dominance across the English and Bangla market. 

According to the Barc data of week 13, Republic Media Network has once again emerged as a clear, decisive and undisputed leader in the English news genre with its 39.3 per cent market share, and Republic Bangla with 27.4 per cent.

On the other hand, Republic TV has continued its unbeaten run across all-time bands in the English news genre. In the West Bengal market, Republic Bangla has unseated ABP Ananda once again, the two-decade-old news leader in the genre, as the top Bengali news channel. The regional news channel has recorded a market share of 27.1 per cent.

Maintaining the winning streak, Republic Bharat has maintained its convincing lead above Aaj Tak.

Republic Media Network has reached approximately 145 million or 14.5 crore viewers in the last week alone and 303 million or 30.3 crore viewers across India in a four-week period. As India’s largest news network, Republic’s viewership numbers across regions, time bands, and languages in a period where the world is banking on breaking news on television have conclusively established it as India’s top choice. The widening of the gap over the number 2 channels, respectively in the English, Hindi, and Bengali news genre, is a testament to the sensational network win of Republic Media Network.

Republic TV’s thundering all-day all-India ratings continue to be almost 12 percent higher or 1.5 times of the number 2 channel Times Now. In fact, this week Republic TV is 165 percent greater than Times Now and 238 per cent greater than India Today in terms of viewership across India and across Times bands. This establishes the dominance that India’s top English news channel holds and the consistency with which it has become India’s uncontested news destination across the board. 

Republic TV has established an expansive presence across the war zone in Ukraine and Russia and has activated its wide global reporter base to ensure that it has leaped miles ahead of the competition on the big global story, something that the competition can’t match.

Republic Bangla has broken all records by unseating ABP Ananda strongly for the fourth consecutive week. Establishing itself as the decisive new news leader in the Bengali news genre, Republic Bangla has emerged as the top choice in the Bengali news genre across all-time bands. From its breaking news formats, its deep investigations on ground in Bengal, its unparalleled regional and global reportage, and the most dynamic on-air team, Republic Bangla has brought with it a new wave in journalism in Bengal. Republic Bangla is the channel of choice for the people of Bengal.

A week after week lead over Aaj Tak in the Hindi news genre, Republic Bharat has brought a new order to Hindi news television. With its dedicated 100 percent news format and extensive on-ground reporting within India as well as from the War zone, Republic Bharat has become the undisputed choice for Hindi news viewers as it defeats legacy media once again.

The superstorm of Republic Bharat continues once again with the Network’s Hindi news channel dominating with record-breaking viewership in the primetime slot. Aaj Tak has slipped to the third position, while Republic Bharat continues to be India’s top choice in the most-critical time band of 'Poochta Hai Bharat.'

Republic Media Network has, with its nation-first, news-first, and people-first approach, resonated with viewers across languages. We are deeply indebted to our millions of viewers and supporters across the country and the world who have remained unwavering in their support of our journalism. We shall always undauntingly bring you the news and coverage that India expects from the news leader.
