Television advertising in India has is one of the fastest growing markets in the Asia Pacific regions of the globe. Since the Indian television is on a threshold of a major technological change, with new distribution technologies like digital cable, DTH (Direct- to – home) and IPTV (Internet Protocol television), television on advertising is surely going to take on a new role. Because of the increased interactivity in content and niche programming styles catering to very specific target groups, advertising on television too is going to be more focused and will definitely draw more eyeballs. Moreover, today, TV enabled mobile handsets are gaining popularity in India. This might change the nature of TV advertising. Bharti, Vodafone and Reliance will provide their channels on mobile handsets. Times Now, a 24 hours news and current affair channel from the Times Group was first launched on Reliance mobiles and then on the regular TV sets. Reality formats are popular amongst television and they lay emphasis on audience interaction. SMS voting and in-programme advertising has become a key ingredient in most of these shows. This too gives new scope of advertising. Because of the increased audience fragmentation, both the advertisers and the broadcasters are constantly on their toes.

Also, the launch of six DTH platforms in India will create innovative advertising spaces. In fact the incoming of the DTH services in India is being viewed as a healthy development for the advertising and the television industry. There has been a 29% growth in TV advertising in during the first quarter of 2008. Hindustan Unilever Ltd. was the number one television advertiser during the first quarter of 2008. At the same time, many companies are refraining to use this medium because of the clutter and lack of focus in the medium.
