TT viewing figures rise to boost tourism?

 

The growing demand for TT coverage around the world should bring more visitors to the Island, whether bikers or not.

 

Latest audience figures show a huge increase in the TV audience for North's One's programmes on ITV4 - which put on an extra one million viewers from last year.

 

The statistics also show year-on-year growth for other forms of media, including radio, print, online and social media.

 

A TT app launched just before the start of TT proved a big hit: it was downloaded 73,000 times with a total of 1.4 million active sessions.

 

But does this expansion of the TT brand off-Island add to the Manx economy?
