Under the new deal, the terms of the agreement have been extended for an additional five years so as to expire on 3 December, 2025, with three one-year renewal options granted to Nielsen, the TV rating company said in a regulatory filing to the US SEC.

"Nielsen has committed to purchase services from TCS from the effective date through the remaining term of the agreement (the 'minimum commitment') in the amount of $2.25 billion, including a commitment to purchase at least $320 million in services per year from 2017 through 2020, $186 million in services per year from 2021 through 2024, and $139.5 million in services in 2025," it added.
