Tricolor hit by Ukrainian piracy

By Chris Dziadul | June 2, 2009

The Russian DTH platform Tricolor TV is been watched illegally by almost 1 million Ukrainians in the past year.

The figure was given at a cable industry forum in Ukraine and reported by Russia’s Cableman, which added that the platform has no distribution rights in Ukraine.

Tricolor TV is the largest and fastest growing DTH service in Russia.

It began this year with 4.35 million subscribers, or 190% more than 12 months earlier.
