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


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
