The Awards are given to the channels with the highest number of winning, runner up and highly commended entries in the programming and performance categories, along with select technical and creative categories. Awards auditor PriceWaterhouseCoopers calculates the winner by using an agreed points system. For each winning entry in the programming category, the channel receives ten points; for each runner up award, it receives six points; and it receives two points for each highly commended entry. For the performance category, and technical & creative category, winning entries earn five points, runner up awards are a credit of three points, and the channel receives one point for highly commended entries. Only entries submitted directly by broadcasters will be counted towards points for Terrestrial Channel of the Year and Cable & Satellite Channel of the Year.
