New chief for Amedia TV

Russian broadcaster and content provider Amedia has named Sergey Nazarov as the new chief of Amedia TV, which operates premium channels and the Amediatek on-demand service. 

Nazarov, who was previously chief executive of Moscow city network provider MGTS, replaces Vitaly Studytshkoho, who is leaving the company.

Amedia TV launched a year ago, acquiring key rights from HBO and other US content providers. The Amediatek service is available through dedicated set-top boxes and smart TVs. The service reportedly has about 20,000 paying subscribers currently.
