Russian broadcaster CTC Media is launching its international channel in Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan after striking a number of distribution deals.
The international version of the CTC channel will launch in Armenia via cable platform Masttel, in Georgia via the Global Media Group and in Azerbaijan via Nur Duyasi.
Boris Podolsky, CTC Media’s acting chief executive officer and chief financial officer said: “We have recently increased our activity on the CIS market and have expanded our presence in terrestrial, cable and satellite broadcasting. We believe this to be one of the important areas for our development. The cable TV market in this region also shows great potential. In the future, we will examine other possibilities for expansion in the CIS.”
