NTV Plus launches 3D and new entry-level package

Russian pay-TV operator NTV Plus has launched its 3D TV service, following broadcasts of the Champions League final and World Cup matches earlier this year in Moscow cinemas and via satellite.

The new 3D service will be available to existing HD subscribers at no extra charge, requiring a 3D-capable set and 3D active glasses.

Separately, NTV Plus has launched a new package called Light Plus for RUB199 (€4.70) a month. The package provides 54 channels encompassing sports, movies, news, music, kids and factual genres. New subscribers are required to pay RUB600 to activate the service plus four months subscription in advance.
