TV Ad Rate Store Air Time

Ready? Let's Get Started!

Simply use one of the forms below to tell us the rate research services you need, and click "Add to Cart." When we receive your order, we'll get started with research. See the list of popular networks at the bottom of the page for ideas. We may contact you for additional details once we receive your order.

Wondering which networks will work for you? We can make recommendations based on your product and desired airing location.

Note: We perform rate research for TV commercial air time in the popular Direct Response,
30-second format

The rates provided are for Direct Response 30-second airings (where the advertisement contains direct contact information, such as a website address or telephone number, and a call to action). General Advertising rates, for branding messages without a direct call to action, are generally not provided. At present, we do not provide airing research for 1/2 hour infomercials or long-form programming.

This is a Research Service - You Are Not Committed to Buy Air Time

We will send you the requested research once it is completed. You are under no obligation to schedule your airings through our company.

Be sure the email address you specify at PayPal checkout can receive emails, as this is how we contact you to provide the final report to you.

You don't need a PayPal account, just a major credit card. Charges appear under our company name, Academy Leader, Inc.

Broadcast TV Channels: Over-the-air TV stations can be seen by anyone with just an antenna, with or without a cable or satellite connection. That means that they reach every household with a TV, regardless of whether they subscribe to cable. Popular shows include "American Idol," "So You Think You Can Dance?", "NCIS," "America's Got Talent," and many more.

Cable TV Systems include: Time Warner, Comcast, Cablevision, Brighthouse, COX, Charter, AT&T, Verizon, Knology, Sinclair, Suddenlink, and others. It is possible to air a commercial on cable TV networks locally, regionally, or nationally.

NOTE: Satellite TV Systems - Due to the manner in which satellite providers bundle their air time, we do not currently schedule airings on satellite. Satellite systems include: Dish Network, DirecTV. Works like cable, but a satellite dish is installed at the house. These dish-based systems carry most of the same networks available on Cable, but Satellite has a completely separate audience, so satellite airings are purchased separately.
