Baltkom to drop Viasat channels

Latvia’s leading cable operator Baltkom will no longer offer its digital subscribers the Viasat channels TV 1000 and TV 1000 Russkie Kino from next year.

They will ultimately be replaced by the new movie channels Illuzion and Russkie Illuzion, both of which will make their debuts on December 21.

Illuzion will show leading movies from around the world and Russkie Illuzion Russian movies from the Soviet era.
