Supplementary notes

* The television values are retail equivalent values calculated from the dataset of films shown on UK television. The methodology used this year is different from previous years: values are estimated by dividing broadcaster revenues (from subscriptions, advertising spend and licence fee share) by the percentage of content spend attributed to film. Television values cover terrestrial, pay TV and other multi-channel TV. On-demand television-based services are included within the digital video total
** Actual revenues deflated by the UK GDP deflator.
Figures may not sum to totals due to rounding.
