April 27, 2012 00.27 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

The Russian MTG-backed broadcaster CTC Media and Evropa-Aziya television and radio company have signed an agreement allowing for the distribution of CTC International in Kyrgyzstan.

As a result, the channel is now being offered as a FTA service to 25% of the latter’s population, with its technical penetration set to increase in the future.

CTC International provides the best content from the CTC, Domashny and Peretz channels and is currently available to viewers in the US and Israel, as well as Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa via Hot Bird.

Significantly, Kyrgyzstan is the first country where it is not distributed by cable or satellite.
