RTRS to pilot HbbTV services in three Russian cities

Russian state-owned broadcasting organisation RTRS is to pilot HbbTV services in three Russian cities, according to deputy CEO Viktor Pinchuk.

Speaking at the CSTB 2013 event in Moscow, Pinchuk reportedly said that RTRS was currently testing HbbTV-based hybrid broadcast broadband services using technology from three international providers. It would then move to a pilot phase in three cities with populations over one million, using set-top boxes that also supported DVB-T2 broadcasts, he said.
