"We are extremely pleased to extend our relationship with Rentrak," commented Sinclair COO Steve Marks. "The relatively large database size provided by Rentrak's service provides for much greater ratings stability and predictability than would otherwise be obtainable, at a very fair price. We plan to evaluate whether or not to make similar moves in other markets when our contracts with Nielsen come up for renewal in the near future."
Scores of stations have been adding Rentrak's ratings, though the large majority has also retained Nielsen.
Sinclair acquired the Four Points stations last year.
