How does BARC check TRP?
Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) estimates the TRP of entire TV channels by taking data from several thousand frequencies. This agency uses a special gadget to measure TRP. Barometers are installed at some places to measure TRP. These barometers use certain frequencies to find out which program or channel is being watched the most and how often.
Through this meter, every minute TV information is sent to the monitoring agency. This team analyzes the information received from the barometer and decides what is the TRP of which channel or program.
A list of the most popular channels is made according to Television Rating Point (TRP) and then the data of top 10 TRP TV serials, TV news channels is made public on weekly or monthly basis.
How important is TRP?
TRP is very important for advertisers because it helps advertisers to easily know on which channel their products or services will get maximum benefit by advertising. Every advertiser likes to advertise on the channel with highest TRP.
