The Attest brand index is a platform agnostic measure of a brand’s total brand equity in the entertainment sector, as determined by real consumers.

What do we mean by ‘platform agnostic’? We mean the results are not influenced by any particular method of obtaining them, such as looking only at social media mentions, or brand search terms. This reduces bias and provides a much more accurate view of a brand’s strength in any given category.

Learn more about why we believe this is the best methodology for brand intelligence.

To determine the entertainment brand index, we look at three things:

  1. Percentage of unprompted brand recall within a named category e.g. ‘alcohol’ ‘fashion’ or ‘travel’
  2. How likely a person is to purchase your particular brand (purchase intent)
  3. How likely a person is to recommend your brand (net promoter score)

Our data is gathered every quarter from an online survey sent to a nationally representative panel of 1,000 UK consumers aged 18-65.

Top 13 entertainment brand leaders by unprompted brand recall, ranked by total brand equity:

  1. Netflix
  2. Sony
  3. Sky
  4. Apple
  5. Disney
  6. Virgin
  7. Vue
  8. Odeon
  9. Cineworld
  10. ITV
  11. Samsung
  12. BBC
  13. HMV
