Russia’s Rostelecom reboots IPTV service

Russian telco Rostelecom has relaunched its IPTV service with a number of major improvements, including multi-screen access to the service, new channels added, and social TV features.

The new service is being called ‘Interaktivnoe TV’ (‘Interactive TV’) and includes 200 channels, including 17 in high-definition, as well as a number of improvements, such as the ability to record up to three channels at once, time-shift live TV, a new VOD library, and archived TV programmes from the past three days for all channels.

The service’s basic package costs between RUB 220 (US$ 7.17) and RUB 280, and will be available in all markets where Rostelecom’s existing IPTV service is available, except Moscow.

Rostelecom (part of Syazinvest) is the largest telecoms operator in Russia, following the merger in April 2011 of interregional communications companies CenterTelecom, North-West Telecom, South Telecom Company, Volga Telecom, Ural Telecom, Siberia Telecom, Far East Telecom and Dagsvyazinform with the Rostelecom national long-distance communications company.
