  • Audience / Time-Shifted: the playback audience to a video or DTR recording (e.g. Sky+) of a programme.  Playback occurs within 2 to 7 days of the original broadcast to be counted.
  • Total Audience: the consolidated viewing audience for the programme. This is the sum of the live, VOSDAL and time-shifted audiences.
