Russian public TV service to begin online

Russia’s planned public broadcaster will begin as an online service in January, according to deputy CEO Igor Naigovzin, speaking to local press.

Naigovzin told the RIA Novosti service that an exact data to begin webcasting had yet to be fixed, but that the service would start in January. He said that the service would begin in test mode.

The web version of the service will continue after the new service goes on air, something that is envisaged for May next year.
