BENGALURU: Two channels – Enterr 10 Television’s free to air (Free or FTA) Hindi GEC Dangal and the Sun Tv Network’s flagship Tamil GEC Sun TV having been vying for the top slot in Broadcast Audience Research Council of India (BARC) weekly lists of Top 10 Channels across genres as mentioned by us earlier.
During the Indian cricketing bonanza tourney, the IPL, it is Star India Hindi Sports channel Star Sports 1 Hindi that often held onto the numero uno status. Between week 13 and week 40 of 2019, it is Dangal that has held first rank in BARC’s weekly lists for 16 of the 28 weeks. Dangal has held on to first place for four consecutive weeks until week 40. Further, since B4U Movies exited BARC’s weekly list across genres on all platforms in week 38 of 2019, Dangal is the only FTA channel in its fold. The other 9 channels have been pay channels. Dangal retook the numero uno mantle in BARC’s Across Genres on all platforms weekly list.

It must be noted that BARC had stopped publishing viewership data in the public domain since week 6 of 2019 to allow ratings to stabilise after the implementation of Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) New Tariff Order. BARC recommenced putting up ratings in the public domain only in week 13 of 2019.
