The full form of TRP is Television Rating Point.  With the help of a television rating point, we get to know the popularity of a particular Television program or a TV broadcasting channel.

It is used to calculate which program or channel is viewed most on a particular period of time such as day, week, or month.

Explanation of TRP?

This is the index of the people’s choice regarding their Favorite television program or channel.
A higher TRP is the result of higher viewers so the broadcasting network can display the more number of advertisements during favorite programs of viewers.


Like you see the advertisement of any product on any channel. How much the product owner pays, this channel will disguise. But this does not happen for every channel,

some channels accept the offer given by the owner.

As we have said, it is directly related to the number(people’s). How many numbers are watching a channel in a particular time?

On the other hand, TRP data is helpful in scheduling the timing of shows, on a particular channel.

How is TRP calculated and Who calculates it?

In order to calculate the TRP of a Tv program or a channel, a device is attached to the TV set up in a few thousands of customers or viewers’ houses for the purpose of judging their choices on the screen.

In the Indian subcontinent, the TRP of the broadcasting network is earlier calculated by DART i.e. Doordarshan Audience Research Team, because at that time the only available channel was the Doordarshan network.

Tools Used to calculate TRP?
