By Chris Dziadul | April 14, 2009

Russia’s Comstar-UTS ended Q1 with over 81,500 subscribers to its pay-TV service Stream TV.

The company, which has provided the figure following the earlier publication of Q1 results, has also revealed that over 7,500 of these subscribers also received broadband services.

Comstar-UTS took complete operational control of Stream TV in September 2008 and later in the year competed the acquisition of Stream TV operators offering cable TV, FTA TV and broadband internet services in 40 Russian cities.
