UK Independent TV Market Dynamics Analyzed in New Study Published at

LONDON – As far back as the mid-1950s, the viewership of non-commercial TV in the UK households was reduced from its monopolistic position, when ITV (or Channel 3) was first launched, soon making it the most popular channel in the UK. During much of the 1990s ITV (now styled ITV1) claimed the largest single viewing figures. However, in 2001 BBC1 again regained the largest viewing figures (26.9% compared with ITV’s 26.7%). The downturn in advertising revenue and the collapse of the ITV digital channel squeezed programme budgets and affected ITV more than the non-commercial channels.
