According to Kantar Media Vietnam, there are 198 television channels operated by 65 public television stations and 11 pay television service suppliers in the country.
TV advertising is said to affect shopping decisions, with as much as 45% of the respondents saying television decided their shopping behavior based on a recent survey conducted by Kantar Media.
In particular, TV advertising in 2013 marked a record in terms of prices when a company paid up to VND280 million to have their product advertised during an ad break from The Voice Kids program on VTV3 for only 30 seconds.
Along with TV advertising, digital advertising including online and mobile advertising also posted strong sales growth last year.
