DAILY RATING

daily rating becomes a new challenge

Television audience measurement was initially conducted by Survey Riset Indonesia (SRI) in October 1991. As Director of TVRI, I did facilitate meetings between the 5 commercial television and SRI to set up weekly rating/share measurement.

DAILY RATING

daily rating becomes a new challenge

In January 2007, AGB Nielsen offered a new kind of television survey method i.e. DAILY RATING/SHARE This concept changed the paradigm in making rating/share calculation from once a week every Wednesday to a daily basis calculation.

DAILY RATING

daily rating becomes a new challenge
Transcorp received the challenge to use daily rating/share and has become the first and still sole television station that applies the concept based on several considerations:

1

Transcorp has done a consistence and comprehensive audience research even before broadcast in 2001. There fore Transcorp used to analyzed audience habits.

2

Transcorp is the only TV company with 80-85% in-house production. Hence it can easily make content changes, particularly in stripping programs based on daily rating/share;

DAILY RATING

daily rating becomes a new challenge
Transcorp owns strong and good software to make a comprehensive daily rating/share analysis of each program. Since 3 years ago. Transcorp has strengthen its research and development team in the programming, production, news, sales and marketing division. Team members vary in every division. Division with most research personnel is the news division i.e. 30 people. Research and development team of every division communicate with one another to arrange strategic planning in creating television programs. Findings from AGB Nielsen daily rating/share analysis becomes reference of every program producer to daily enhance program quality;

Daily Rating/Share Competitive Advantage

1

Program content becomes dynamic. Creative and production staffs at levels can daily analyze programs and make quick adjustments and changes.

2

Producers can monitor rating/share changes pro day so that every Wednesday besides receiving weekly all people all station analysis results from AGB Nielsen, they can also make more accurate prediction on weekly rating/share for the next Wednesday.

Daily Rating/Share Competitive Advantage

3

TV sales and marketing can faster sell programs & transfer data based on daily rating/share CPRP results to advertisers and agencies than other stations.

4

News and Current Affairs Division can determine Topic of the Day according to public interest more accurately.

Daily Rating/Share Disadvantage

1

The concept offered by AGB Nielsen today is still focusing on rating/share calculation for Jakarta and its surroundings only, while there are 9 cities taken as sample for weekly rating/share analysis. Therefore we hope the survey will soon be conducted in all cities. So that all cities all people analysis become more precise. Transcorp must pay 30% more than weekly rating/share. This number will rise when there are more cities involved in the daily rating/share analysis.

Daily Rating/Share Disadvantage

5

Mobility of all planning, production, news, sales and marketing team will rise high since they must do more meetings and think of more strategies to daily change program content.

Final Conclusion

Daily rating gives strategic benefits to TRANSCORP because it makes the company more capable in making quick and accurate changes based on a more precise daily rating/share basis analysis

Suggestions

1

Change of rating/share analysis paradigm using more sophisticated and faster technology by AGB Nielsen must be strictly and transparently audited because it is the only rating/share research institution in Indonesia. Like in South Africa and other countries, an independent commission must be build to monitor its work to save guard interests of all parties involved in the TV industry.
