Vladlink to launch Russian IPTV

Vladlink is trialling IPTV services in the Russia’s Far East, in preparation for a full commercial launch with its residential customers.

The Internet service provider has chosen Netris to provide its iVision middleware for the service, to be branded ‘Vladlink.TV’. There will be over 110 channels available at launch delivered to HD-capable STBs from D-Link. The service will also offer a Mosaic View feature, which provides thumbnails of up to 15 channels simultaneously on one screen.
