Consumer ABCs: TV Listings

Although the TV Listings magazine market is in decline, the top performing titles still pack a punch.

H Bauer's TV Choice remains king with a solid circulation - entirely in print, like the majority of the market - of 1.2 million. The title was down only -1.5% period on period and -2.6% year-on-year.

In second place is What's on TV from Time Inc with a circulation of 885,600 (down -6.3% both PoP and YoY), followed by Immediate Media's Radio Times with a circulation of 622,800 (down -9.1 PoP and -6.8% YoY).

Time Inc's TV Times suffered the hardest losses in H1 2017: the title was down almost -12% PoP and -10.3% YoY to a total circulation of 176,900.

Only Time Inc's Soaplife recorded any growth in the market and was up by almost 15.2% to a circulation of more than 44,800.
