Russia’s MTS will launch New DTH service for Russia

November 12, 2014
Russia’s MTS will launch its satellite TV platform before the end of the year.

Quoting sources at MTS and its controlling company AFK Sistema, Kommersant reports that the service,[color=#FF0000][size=medium][u][i] distributed by ABS-2,[/i][/u][/size][/color] covering 95% of the country, will offer 160 channels, 30 of which will be in HD, and cost R1,200 (€20.8) a year to receive.

It will aim to become the second leading DTH platform in Russia after Tricolor TV within three years, investing R5 billion in the process.

MTS secured a licence to operate a satellite TV service this September.

It is already the third leading pay-TV player in Russia, with 2.7 million cable and IPTV subscribers. However, the take-up of new customers has slowed recently.

Industry sources believe the greatest potential for the new DTH platform, in securing subscribers, will lie in remote regions of the far east of Russia.

  1. MJ Bro and Dayag bro, plz keep tracking any movement from tata sky be it on Insat 4A or any changes on ABS2. I am sure with ur hard work, we will get all the answers in the coming days 🙂

  2. Please don’t think as i am totally ignoring the Tatasky possibilties of getting TPs from ABS. I want some calculations and how many TPs may be availble for them.

  3. Is that used in FM Transmission ? just asking as i am not aware .
    So let us leave 108 MHz until the full information comes out.
    By the way out of 51 TPs 108 MHZ also included. so 54MHz numbers comes down .

  4. Bhai, for that you can write a mail to them

    there is no details about 108 MHz TP or no information of the TP numbers for India Beam. they have said only 51 KU Band 54& 108 MHz TPs.

  6. If anyone wants to write a mail

  7. I didnt get the information link. can you give the link of TP Details, informations.
    By the way can you send email to them and get all informations?if so that will be good for me and us to get the actual scinario.

    Can you tell me about 108 MHz TP ? Is it Horizontal+Vertical 54 MHz of same numbers? the present TP is of 54MHz.

    Bhai , you can check their website for more details

  9. Can you tell me about 108 MHz TP ? Is it Horizontal+Vertical 54 MHz of same numbers? the present TP is of 54MHz.

  10. Each 54 Mhz TP can hold 12 to 13 HD channels or close to 50 SD Channels in MPEG4. Plus don’t forget ABS 2 also has 108 Mhz TP, if Tata Sky gets even few of them ten even with 10, 12 Transponders they can increase channels count to triple the current count

  11. Brother make a calculation if Tatasky gets 10 TP. how many channels can they add ? even if they fill 70 SD channels +15 HD Channels in 3 TP then how much they get secured for future plans ? they already lanched UHD which needs more space. let we keep 1 TP for this use. so 6 TP for SD. about 350-375 SD TV Channels40 HD .
    is this space secure them.

    Try writing to ABS on their E Mail ID, may be they will give a response.

    I am quite sure its not for MTS, why would they test with Indian Channels and on a Indian Beam. Also all these channels testing are FTA from broadcaster end and i am sure its ABS who are testing these channels to see the sunctioning of transponders which will later be handed over to Tata Sky

    How can you say as it’s only for Tatasky itself ? Out of 51 TP already 25-26 are active . now remaining 25 TPs will have to be shared for 6 Beams. then how much india Beam will get ? even if India get 10 TPs then how much benefitte TS gets from migration ? for me it looks dull .

    May be there are more TP’s for India Beam as Max Demand is from India due to so many channels which DTH ops have to relay. Also each TP is of 54 Mhz as compared to 36 Mhz TP’s Tata Sky currently uses.

    Bro, India is not like Sri Lanka where Dialog just gives 88 channels and charges Rs. 2000 per month. Here we have so many channels so each satellite provider allcates max transponders for India . This market is major revenue generator

  14. True MJ Bro, picture will be clear in Feb, if its for Tata Sky we will more testing on other TP’s too as dources are saying that migration is starting from March 1

  15. ABS provider info can be there even if DD, Ts, dishtv or any dth tests there for now as it is still unofficially testing
