The latest Ipsos Affluent Survey released on April 24, 2015 once again confirms CNN as the irrefutable No. 1 international news brand in Asia-Pacific, reaching one in three upscale consumers (34 per cent) and more than one in two (53 per cent) C-Level Executives every month. The independent survey also reveals significant audience growth for CNN on both its TV and digital platforms.

In digital, CNN’s monthly reach is 51 per cent higher than the next largest brand (excludes social networking sites, search engines and portals). CNN’s lead is even more clear-cut in key target groups with an 80 per cent advantage with top management and 64 per cent with business decision makers.

CNN also recorded substantial growth (Q1-Q4 2014 versus Q3-Q4 2013) in TV and digital consumption. In TV, there was strong growth in daily (+13 per cent), weekly (+11 per cent) and monthly (+6 per cent) audience numbers.

In digital, the monthly digital reach increased by 11 per cent and was most significant in the key target groups of international business travelers (+72 per cent) and international leisure travelers (+57 per cent).

In India, CNN remains the undisputed No. 1 international news brand for top management with a 39 per cent lead in multi-platform reach over the BBC. On TV, CNN reaches twice as many top management viewers on a daily basis and 41 per cent more on a monthly basis than BBC World News. Among India’s affluent audience, CNN is yet again the international news leader as a multi-platform brand reaching more than one in five upscale consumers (22 per cent).

On TV, CNN is the most watched international news brand, reaching 16 per cent more viewers each month than BBC World News. The lead continues on digital platform as CNN reaches 42 per cent more audiences than BBC each month.

Sunita Rajan, Vice-President, Advertising Sales for Asia Pacific, CNN International, remarked, “This is a spectacular result for CNN and a testament to the commitment we made to our audience – to provide first-class content across multiple platforms. Our audience’s appetite for global news and staying connected has never been greater. In response, we’ve boosted our resources across television and made major investments in digital including an integrated newsroom, designing a new responsive website and creating a slate of new dedicated digital content. These survey results show unequivocally that CNN is the number one international news brand and the first choice for affluent consumers.”
