Question:

For the cost mentioned on the site how many times would my ad be shown?

Answer:

Shared rate for Television is per second. Let me explain this through an example. 

Rate Star Plus - Rs 2,000 per sec

Length of your ad - 20 seconds

So every time your ad gets played, you would need to pay Rs 2000 X 20 = Rs 40,000


Now, if you play this ad 10 times it would cost Rs 40,000 X 10 = Rs 400,000
