Shedding some light onto the value of movies to overseas broadcasters, a study by data research company Attentional for the British Film Institute has revealed that that 59,542 broadcasts of movies in the U.K. in 2013 brought in an estimated $2.7 billion. The study, reported in today’s (Monday) edition of the British trade publication Screen Daily, indicated that the average person watched 53 movies on free TV during the year (pay-TV film channels and other online video channels were not included in the study). The most-watched film in the U.K. during the year was Disney/Pixar’s Up, carried by the BBC and reaching an audience of 7.9 million. The No. 2 film was Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Times, also carried on the BBC, with 5.9 million. It was followed closely in third place by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which drew 5.6 million when it aired on ITV, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which drew 5.3 million.
