Network18 Media & Investments Limited reported 2QFY20 consolidated revenue of Rs. 1,174 crores (down 5% Y-o-Y), as robust 43% growth in subscription income post implementation of new tariff order (NTO) was offset by a weak advertising environment.

Network18's News cluster furthered its leadership through a rise in viewership share to 10.9% vs 10.1% in 1Q; despite being a pay network. Network18's Entertainment cluster viewership share was 9.2% in 2Q.

Sharp display advertising growth in (especially vernacular) boosted revenues even amidst a tepid environment. Operating margin fell due to operating losses of recently launched app CricketNext; and investments into the subscription model of MoneyControl, MC Pro, which has witnessed growing traction.
