New channels on Ukrainian DTT

The Ukrainian Media Group has launched trial versions of film channel Kinotochka and drama channel NLO-TV.

The company has struck a deal with national digital TV network Zeonbud for both channels. Kinotochka airs movies, series and documentary feature films, while NLO-TV airs mostly mystery dramas.

However, the company will not be launching the news channel Novosti after it was refused a national licence. “We are not planning to develop the Novosti channel, as we did not receive the licence [for national digital broadcasting],” the group’s director-general Fedir Oharkov told local press.
