Russian cable operator Akado has signed up the first 1,000 customers for its new interactive TV service, launched in February in partnership with technology provider LifeStream.
The service enables viewers to watch channels they subscribe to on mobile devices and the web as well as on TV.
Subscribers can view content on several devices simultaneously, view archive programmes, and order a range of 11 packages from over 170 channels from RUB50 a month (€0.70).
The service provider gave its 1,000th customer, Alexander Yurievich Kulikov, a year’s free access to Akado’s TV service for a year as a gift.
Russian technology company Lifestream supplies products for cable, satellite, IP and hybrid deployments. Customers include Alma TV, Kcell, Rostelecom, Orion Express, MTS, GNC Alfa and ER-Telecom.
