Lattelecom replaces Russian channels

Latvian telco Lattelecom is adding new channels to its Russian language TV line-up, replacing existing channels on the service with which it has failed to agree rebroadcast rules.

Lattelecom is dropping news channel RTVi, Teleklub and movie channel Nashe Lubimoje Kino because it has no agreement in place on rebroadcast with these services.

In their place, the telco is adding Mir 24, a factual channel covering news, current affairs, sports, culture and technology, comedy channel Komedia TV and biography channel Kto yest’ kto (Who’s Who).
