Russia’s leading DTH platform Tricolor TV has added 10 more channels to its offer.

Seven of the channels – Ocean TV, TV Arm Ru, Television for the sake of society, Expert-TV, This terrible TV, Galaxy and Style TV – have joined the Super Optimum package.

At the same time, three others – Tatarstan – New Century, TopShopTV and Home Store – can now be found in its Optimum offer.

This terrible TV, one of the more unusually named channels, claims to be the first of its kind in Russia and indeed the world, providing viewers with a mix of classic horror movies, contemporary thrillers, mysticism and black humour.

All the new channels in the Super Optimum package are currently being broadcast on a trial basis.

Super Optimum is offered free of charge to Optimum subscribers. Tricolor TV is backed by Gazprom Media and distributed by Eutelsat W4 and W7.
