    • Briefs or bookings may contain splits per daypart or may simply outline a desired “Peak/Off Peak” split.
    • All dayparts outside of 18:00-22:30 are generally referred to as “off peak”.
    • Daypart splits outlined on briefs are generally based on cost, tarp, thousands or spot numbers


    Working Example:

    John from Brand A has requested a tarp based 60/40 POP (peak/off peak split) within his TV schedule. This will mean that John’s schedule will have 60% of his projected tarps placed into peak dayparts and 40% placed into off peak dayparts.
