Aaj Tak climbs back to No. 1 spot; BBC enters top 5 in English news genre

MUMBAI: Aaj Tak once again climbed to the top position among the Hindi general news channels even as the week-on-week seesaw battle in the genre continued.

However, the week ended 13 November saw the top five Hindi news channels gain significantly in terms of viewership.

Interestingly, despite an increase in viewership, previous week’s leader India TV ended the week at No. 3 as Aaj Tak and ABP News each went up a slot.

English news channels witnessed some gain in viewership. While Times Now maintained its lead in the genre, NDTV 24X7 hopped on to the No. 2 spot, racing ahead of CNN IBN.

BBC World News entered the top five.

Unlike Hindi and English general news channels, the top three channels in the English business news genre witnessed a fall in viewership owing to the Diwali holidays and the markets remaining closed.

The pecking order remained unchanged—ET Now led the chart, followed by CNBC TV18, NDTV Profit/ Prime and Bloomberg TV in tow.
