TV advert revenue up

12:31 pm on 9 August 2011

Television advertising revenue rose 5% to $613 million in the June year, compared with the previous year.

That shows a return to growth after March quarter advertising revenues fell, due to the earthquakes in Christchurch.

It is expected the second half of 2011 will see even stronger growth, with more advertising due to the Rugby World Cup and the general election campaign.

The figures are sourced from returns prepared by TVNZ, MediaWorks TV and SKY Network Television.
