Traditional media, alive & kicking

16/08/2017 By Piers Lee


Despite the advance of new media and social media, recent research conducted by BBC World News and BVA BDRC Asia demonstrates that TV is still the preferred medium for news across Asia. Consumers want trusted TV news brands in their subscription packages.  Sometimes this is just about convenience e.g. the media brand 'filters' the news that is important, and serves it up to viewers in the comfort of their living room. But in an age of ‘fake news’, consumers are increasingly relying on the leading media brands to validate the news as it breaks, backed by trusted in-country reporters.  As demonstrated by the research, this level of trust in media brands also provides a halo effect to the brands advertised on these news channels.
