Hometime on Public Television
With nearly 700 episodes of television produced, HOMETIME reaches the home improvement enthusiast like few other programs can.
PBS is the Gold Standard
Public television, known for its standard of excellence, continues to be a perfect fit for Hometime. A recent PBS Image Study noted that the majority of PBS viewers...
…said that PBS sets the standard of quality for television
…believe that companies that fund PBS have a commitment to quality and excellence
…agree that underwriters are usually industry leaders
…are more likely to choose to buy a product from a company that supports PBS, all other things being equal
More than 65 million people in 40 million households watch public television either on-air or online during an average week. The majority of American households (55%) – nearly 109 million people – watch over-the-air public television at least once a month.
PBS captures a more educated and more affluent audience than the US population as a whole.
A Unique Setting for Your Message
The PBS “Billboard” that appears at the beginning and end of each episode of Hometime is a clean, uncluttered environment for corporate message.
Each billboard pod is never more than one minute long, meaning viewers tend to stay engaged with the program and the billboard content.
