ACNielsen Media Statement Regarding TV Ratings

ACNielsen Media Statement Regarding Television Ratings

Auckland – 14 December 2000 – New Zealand’s free-to-air broadcasters announced today they will open a formal tender process for the supply of television ratings, currently supplied by ACNielsen New Zealand.

“This decision has been signalled for some time, as the broadcasters’ current agreement includes a right of review prior to expiration,” said ACNielsen New Zealand managing director David O’Neill. “Our agreement runs through until December 2001 and naturally we will be honouring this.”

“As the medium continues to evolve, the television industry faces challenges such as convergence and digital delivery. Broadcasters everywhere need to review the ratings options in their marketplace, and to assure themselves that they are choosing the best possible audience ratings research partner to work with them.

“ACNielsen New Zealand is looking forward to the tendering process. For almost 30 years local broadcasters and advertisers have been able to rely on ACNielsen’s consistent and internationally recognised research to measure success and ascribe value. We stand by our work, by the services we’ve delivered to New Zealand’s broadcasting industry and by our ability to meet the future needs of local broadcasters.”
