CTC Media widens IPTV reach

08.56 Europe/London, October 7, 2011 By Chris Dziadul

Subscribers to the Russian IPTV service Beeline TV can now view content broadcast on CTC Media’s CTC and Domashny channel using a new application launched from the Beeline TV menu.

Beeline TV subscribers now also have access to the most popular formats of CTC Media’s DTV channel, which is being rebranded as Peretz later this month.
As a result, CTC Media’s most interesting content can be viewed at any time without having to record it on a set-top box.
Beeline TV customers will be able to watch the first and last episode of any series or show for free before subscribing.
Monthly subscriptions will be R99 (€2.28) for CTC and R49 for Domashny and DTV, with unlimited viewing offered once the fee is paid.
Beeline TV is owned by Vimpelcom and has over 350,000 subscribers in 33 of Russia’s largest cities.
