Business – TV formats trade higher: Report

MUMBAI: The production volume generated by traded TV formats has grown to 9.3 billion Euros (around $13.72 billion) for the years 2006 to 2008, up 45 per cent from the prior three-year period ending 2004.

During the three years through to 2008, 445 original formats found their way to foreign countries.

Formats like Deal or No Deal, Hole in the Wall and Lalola travel around the world inspiring millions of people, according to the latest Frapa (Format Recognition and Protection Association) report.

Fourteen countries including Argentina, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Spain, UK, US and three Nordic countries, Denmark, Norway and Sweden comprise the focus of the report.

Titled Frapa Report 2009 – TV Formats to the World, the survey was compiled in association with global TV research agency The Wit and TV Sisters, a journalistic office that provides international programme research.

Frapa chairman Ute Biernat says, “We very proudly present the impressive results of the new Frapa Report. Once more it shows the impact of the format business on the media industry and the relevance of the protection of format rights, which becomes more and more obvious.”
