Megafon IPTV faces delay as company changes supplier

Russian service provider Megafon has decided not to go ahead with an IPTV launch based on the platform it has been testing for the last two years and has chosen a new supplier to take its plans forward, according to local reports.

Megafon has used Russian middleware provider Netris’s platform to test IPTV services on its network in the city of Togliatti, but according to local reports has now decided to switch supplier to BCC, another Russian technology supplier. The move is likely to delay Megafon’s launch of a service. Rivals including MTS and VimpelCom/Beeline have already built substantial IPTV customer bases.
