Abstract

Companies have long engaged in head-to-head competition in search of sustained, profitable growth. They have fought for competitive advantage, battled over market share, and struggled for differentiation. Strategic moves--termed "value innovation"--create powerful leaps in value for the firm and its buyers, rendering rivals obsolete and unleashing new demand.

In recent time when competition has reached its peak all the news channels try to provide best news from their side but still there is a huge wide gap between what they provide & the Expectation of the viewers. Hence our survey idea is based on value innovation which can be used by Hindi News Channels to bridge such gap.

1. Introduction

Companies have long engaged in head-to-head competition in search of sustained, profitable growth. They have fought for competitive advantage, battled over market share, and struggled for differentiation. Strategic moves--termed "value innovation"--create powerful leaps in value for the firm and its buyers, rendering rivals obsolete and unleashing new demand.

In recent time when competition has reached its peak all the news channels try to provide best news from their side but still there is a huge wide gap between what they provide & the Expectation of the viewers. Hence our survey idea is based on value innovation which can be used by Hindi News Channels to bridge such gap.

Our report is based on the data collected from 24th of Feb 2010 to 12th of May 2010 for the purpose of increasing the viewership of the Hindi News Channels. The survey asks viewers about their satisfaction with the Hindi News Channels.

The findings are organized into the following section: 1) An executive summary 2) The methods used 3) Strategy Canvas. 4) Detailed findings for each questions & 5) Patterns in the open ended question 6) Conclusions and Recommendations.

Conclusion: The result of study shows that English is preferred language for newspapers bit television is consumed more in regional languages. Nine in ten affluent watch TV & nearly three-fourth read English dailies. Result also shows that rich segment also watches more movies outside home than other affluent segments.
