The multi-year, multi-transponder contracts are for 140° East over far east Russia and incremental capacity at 56° East over Siberia, giving NTV-Plus full coverage over the Russian Federation.
The expansion comes after NTV-Plus received approvals earlier this year from Russia’s Federal Tender Commission to extend its footprint to the Pacific coast.
“Today NTV Plus covers 100% of the Russian territory with more than 145 million population,” said NTV-Plus CEO, Mikhail Demin.
“For us this expansion is not only business ambition but also is a great social mission which we are honoured to implement with our partner Eutelsat.”
NTV-Plus offers more than 240 channels, including 42 channels produced by Gazprom Media, 11 sports channels and a growing stable of HD content.
