Stream-TV launches e-bookshop

Russian triple-play provider Stream-TV, owned by Comstar-UTS, has teamed up with Russian-language web books specialist LitRes to offer a virtual bookshop on its portal.

Users will be able to download books purchased in about 15 formats including for PCs, smartphones, iPhones and e-book readers. Stream said it would add between 450 and 600 new books each week to the portal.

Separately, Stream-TV subsidiary Tambov Telecom has begun offering broadband internet services via a fibre-to-the-building network in the city of Tambov in central European Russia. The operator will provide internet services to end users via Ethernet while providing TV services over existing in-building cable networks.
