Dangal is a top viewer channel in india According to BARC data.

Dangal a free-to-air Hindi general entertainment channel (GEC), has dethroned Sun TV to emerge the most-viewed, shows data provided by the Broadcast Audience Research Council of India (BARC). 
The data was released on BARC website for the first time in two months after the implementation of new tariff order as mandated by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai). Viewership is measured in impressions and refers to the number of people watching a platform or show at any given point in time. 
The latest data reveals that Dangal, owned and operated by Enter10 Television, has raced to the top with a weekly viewership of 1.1 billion impressions.
On the other hand, Sun TV was the top-rated channel across genres in January 2019 (week 1 to week 5) with 1 billion impressions. The trend remained consistent in the weeks preceding January as well. It has, however, slipped to number 3 with 850 million impressions. 
While data is expected to further stabilise as the industry settles into the new tariff regime, flagship GECs of all four leading broadcasters have seen some changes in viewership. While Colors, Sony Entertainment Television, and Zee TV witnessed a drop of between 13 and 16 per cent, Star Plus saw a marginal increase (1.2 per cent) in viewership. 
A large part of the reason behind Dangal’s ascension to number one is its availability on DD Free Dish, the distribution platform launched by Prasar Bharti. However, an equally big contributor has been the withdrawal of multiple private free-to-air (FTA) channels from the platform in recent months. Multiple popular private FTA channels such as Zee Anmol, Rishtey, Rishtey Cineplex, Star Utsav, Sony Wah, and Star Utsav Movies withdrew from Free Dish on March 1.  
“This is an early trend and should be read with that perspective. Dangal was always available on Free Dish, however, with the exit of the key FTA (free to air) GEC and movie channels, which drew viewers to the platform, the other available channels have benefited as consumers spend more time on these channels,” says a BARC India spokesperson.
