NTV-Plus expands into Ukraine

The Russian DTH platform NTV-Plus has launched a new programme package aimed specifically at Ukraine.

It consists of 28 channels, 20 of which are in Russian, and can be received for UAH26 (3.58) a month.

Commenting on the move, NTV-Plus Dmitry Samokhin said it would offer Ukrainian viewers the opportunity to watch Russian channels that had recently been withdrawn from Ukrainian cable networks.

He added that the cost of receiving NTV-Plus Ukraine is less than that of other pay-TV services in Ukraine.
