Spotlight TV closing
It is with great regret that after almost 7 years broadcasting across the UK , Ireland and beyond, that Spotlight TV will broadcast for the last time at the end of August .
As many regular viewers of the channel know this is down to the way TV audiences in the UK are rated . BARB operate a system that was first set up in the 1980s , and only target a select panel of 5,200 homes out of 30 million, hence if a BARB home does not tune into a certain show , that episode will be given a Zero rating ( That is no one watched it ) .
Based on BARB homes our revenue from advertising agencies is affected
It does not matter if 100,000 homes tune into a show , if no BARB panel member tunes in , that show is deemed that NO ONE watched it , can you believe that in 2022 this antiquated system is still in force ?
We will be taken action against BARB over the coming months and exposing , in full , their outdated practices
Meanwhile please feel free to leave a comment in my Guestbook on this site , and also log onto https://mbffp.com/ and read more about BARB
Thanking you for all the support over the last 6+ years
regards Phil Mack
