The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 is now around three weeks old. Obviously, the matches are carried out in empty stadiums. The teams won’t have the support of their 12th man, which is the crowd!

One may think that can have an impact on the business aspect of the sport. However, exactly the opposite of that has happened. Due to the pandemic situation and almost every entertainment source being on hold, more people are tuning in to their TV sets or online platforms. The IPL 2020 is thus set to break all the viewership records.

The BARC India has released the ratings of the first week of the IPL (19th September to 25th September). The numbers were obviously through the roof. Star Sports 1 Hindi became the number 1 channel across all genres.

Other Star channels Star Utsav and Star Plus were at number 2 and number 3 respectively as well.


The BARC India has now released the ratings for the second week of the IPL 2020 and the results have surpassed even the first week numbers.
