Television advertising continues to flourish

Over the years, investors have shown constant faith in TV advertisements. Television ads accounted for 37 percent of the entire advertising expenditure across India in 2019.

Strong presence of regional languages

The regional languages in India are the main growth drivers for television viewership. While Hindi continues to dominate, other local languages were not far behind.
