    Russia costs digital switchover
    By Chris Dziadul
    December 7, 2009 08.32 UK

    The Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has signed a federal programme paving the way for the country’s transition from analogue to digital broadcasting.

    According to reports in Kommersant and Lenta, the process, which is due to be completed by 2015, will cost R122.4 billion (€2.79 billion). The state will contribute R76.4 billion towards the total, with the remainder sourced from budgetary funds.

    Some R60 billion will be allocated towards the construction of a digital terrestrial network and R26 billion towards satellites.

    Russia plans to have three DTT multiplexes and has already decided on the channels that will be carried by the first.

    Simulcasting will take place until 95% of the population can receive DTT signals.

    At 2015? That is a long time since USA moved to it in a year. Well, proposed a while back, but moved in a year.

    Why the long wait? Is it because of the amount of people in Russia that does not have digital TV at current? Or what else is it?

    It took Amerikans just as long to move to digital air broadcasting. All the stations have to convert their signals, replace their broadcast antennas, as well as change their satelite uplinks. Digital satellites have to be added for remote locations. People have to have convertors or ATSC tuners on their teles to recieve the signals. We are talking about modernising the way EVERYONE watches television. It is not easy or quick.

    How much money will Transformers 3 take from Russia?

    Post  Pervius on Sat Jun 25, 2011 1:54 am

    I read that the Director of Transformers 3, Michael Bay is in Russia along with Linkin Park and the stars of that movie. Michael Bay's grandfather was from Russia, apparently must have been a Jewish Russian as Michael Bay's Jewish, and that religion is a bloodline.

    How much money will be sent out of Russia as everyone goes and watches that movie? Maybe why GM and the US Air Force spent so much time and money supporting those movies?


    Russia should have demanded they be part of the WTO before letting that movie play over there. How will Russia make up all that money that will leave country? Poor business model.

    Not all the money goes to the US... some of it goes to the movie theatres in Russia... and another enormous chunk of cash goes to the bootleggers selling counterfeit copies of the movie in the weeks after it is released in the US and before it is released in Russia so what goes around comes around so to speak...

    National Media of Russia - Telecommunications

    Beside the arrival of Larry King, that is a micro-phenomen, the increasing success of RT means other things. Russian's system starts to be a true alternative against this neo-liberalism.
    People, contrary to what western medias tried persuade us, are looking for serious informations, not only images.
    This is interresting  because RT replaced Al-Jazeerah as an alternative to the system. It is worth to remember that Al-Jazeerah' success was du to the interview of  -supposed- Ussamah Bin Laden, and Ayman Zawari, because these two persons were supposed to be anti-american.
    However the facts prove the contrary, and now RT, -beside PressTV- with its objective coverts about Middle east events, Occupy Wall Street, Chechenya, Russia prove that  its path is correct.
    The next task should be the promotion Rutube.ru, and Yandex in order to end the US leadership in the net.

    It is not the case that RT is the truth and all western media is lies, but I find RT to be better than the western media because it lacks the western slant put on all news items.

    For instance an article about something happening in Cuba could not fail to mention that anything bad is probably the fault of the communist government there, whereas RT would point out that Cuba has a communist government because the US rejected their nationalist uprising pushing them into the arms of the Soviet Union.

    Russia is not communist yet Cuba has not problem having good relations with Russia... so it is not about communism or democracy... it is the US having a beef with Cuba... the little reed that didn't bend in the wind when the american breeze blew past.

    To be honest however there are only a few programs on RT that I watch now... Technology Update being my favourite. The other programs and the channel itself seems to be becoming more and more Americanised and America oriented... personally I am not interested in hearing about all of Americas faults and mistakes... I want to hear about Russia... more specifically what are the problems and what is being done to solve them.

    RT's purpose in the beginning was to cover International, and not National. Seeing that, RT did a wonderfull job.
    In my view, to see more, they are other russian chanels that covers very well Russia.

    I see RT as a continuation of "Pravda". As it's made for western audience, it's language is largely western. 

    I don't like its bashing of NATO and western countries in general and its promotion of various conspiracy nuts such as Alex Jones, Only PressTV can rival it in this matter.

    The Kremlin pays so The Kremlin expects something - nothing strange.

    Its original purpose was to show international news from a Russian perspective... which it did.

    Now however it seems to be a radicalised sort of anti CNN/Anti Fox News channel that constantly rips CNN and Fox news and their coverage of the news.

    It has become too much about America and lost its original focus on Russia and Russian views of world news stories.

    For instance stories about Iran don't paint Iran as the bad guy all the time, or a certain other country in that region as innocent victim.

    RT is mixed.
    They are often annoying conspiracy theorists.
    THey sometimes have decent reports where politics isn't involved.
    They have this one guy who does interviews who makes me cringe HARD.

    Suffice it to say, I don't watch the show. 
    But then again I only watch Colbert and Stewart, and thats not for news.

    I don't see RT radicalised, on contrary, RT is moderate, however CNN, Fox, and chiefly France 24 radicalised. The hate, the rascisme, the despise of pupulations, the war, the lie, propaganda, are in these channels.
    Recall that we are in new era, we are passing from unipolar world toward multi-polar world. The evolution is taking place chieflty in USA, from the super rich country to normal country, and toward bankrupcy. The cover of Ocuupy movement was possible because RT covered them.
    It is normal to see Max Keiser, Galloway, Hizbollah, venezualian politicians's views, etc..., we fed up with western propaganda and their Wolfowivcz, Bernard Henri  Levy -he speaks in the name of french people, however he represented nothing, aside he is strongly hated-, Blair, FinkelKraut -pseudo philosoph-,feminism, leftism, so-called environnementalists, anti-workers, pornographists, ultra-liberalists, anti-religious, warlikers, human-rightists and women-rightists, Rap music, Hollywood show, NBA, Football buiseness,  femen-represent nothing-, pussy riots-represent nothing- etc...
    In all area we have one idea, Ultra-liberalism, the same idea, in near all western countries it is becomming the dictaturship. With RT we saw other point of views.
    I think what is very interresting is to see the revenge of russian model of society. RT is the speaker of this view in the world, and the success of RT, and tommorow PressTV prefigure the world of tommorow.
    Mutipolar world.

    The media is a very important tool/asset in today's world. And judging by it's popularity, RT is doing a fine job.

    Speaking of so called "conspiracy" theorists, the western media does the same when reporting on Russia...I can't remember the last time I saw a positive report on Russia on any western channel. And it's always some paid for, fringe elements potrayed as the good guys fighting the evil regime

    Sorry, Radicalised was not the right word.

    What I meant was Americanised.
    So many new programs hosted by Americans that do shows largely about America.

    They are not anti american... and that is fine, because neither am I, but they are anti american establishment... and to be honest I don't much care about problems in america... much the same as americans probably don't care about problems here in New Zealand and if they tuned in to a channel called America today they wouldn't expect to see  a channel where all the reporters were New Zealanders who were based in New Zealand doing shows about problems and opinions in New Zealand.

    I watched Russia Today to watch news about Russia and it is less about Russia now than it was before in my opinion.

    Speaking of so called "conspiracy" theorists, the western media does the same when reporting on Russia...I can't remember the last time I saw a positive report on Russia on any western channel. And it's always some paid for, fringe elements potrayed as the good guys fighting the evil regime

    That is something very amusing... talk of conspiracy theories and tinfoil hats when things like 11/9 are concerned, but some Russia national gets poisoned with a material that is easily detectable for thousands of years because it is radioactive and costs hundreds of thousands of dollars per gramme and is rather hard to get and all of a sudden the BBC and other western news agencies claim it was Putin himself that did it...

    It seems the definition of conspiracy theories is fairly loose and can be applied when useful, and used as a derogatory term when that suits too.

    It was very good channel before they changed and became Propaganda preacher. Don't watch it anymore. I prefer Russian language news as they are more professional and more concentrated on Russia

    Perhaps they need a Russian American channel for broadcasting in the US... it seems to me the problem is that journalists in the US that still care about the truth and don't want to be censored by Fox et al are looking for work at Russia Today.

    I would also like to see rather more programs about technology in Russia like technology update, and some programs about the Russian military... but of course I am biased... angel

    Dissolution of RIA Novosti

    Post  macedonian on Mon Dec 09, 2013 8:56 pm

    RIA News wrote:RIA Novosti to Be Liquidated in State-Owned Media Overhaul

    MOSCOW, December 9 (RIA Novosti) – The Kremlin announced Monday the dissolution of RIA Novosti, the country’s major state-run news agency, amid a significant reorganization of state-owned media assets.

    News agency RIA Novosti and the state-owned Voice of Russia radio will be scrapped and absorbed into a new media conglomerate called Rossiya Segodnya, according to a decree signed by President Vladimir Putin.

    Effin' idiotic move by Vladimir Vladimirovich!
    The best Russian news org if you ask me.

    I guess they've said it best themselves:

    RIA News wrote:The move is the latest in a series of shifts in Russia’s news landscape, which appear to point toward a tightening of state control in the already heavily regulated media sector.
    Putin's time is passing I think - and he's getting more paranoid...

    Russia has so many news organizations, its hard to pinpoint what out. If they have same news, from same organization (state owned) news, why not merge them into one entity as it will save money. There are other news organizations who are willing to pick up slack, especially whatever stupid crap Putin does.

    Dont see how this is tightening any grips or someone grasping at power, when the organizations themselves are kremlin owned and run, and they are consolidating them.

    Maybe im wrong, please better explain this to me.

    Most US news agencies are owned by like 6 people when decades ago it was owned by significantly more. It is dangerous in the fact that news is very slanted and biased, or at least you will be hard pressed to find news with a different viewpoint. At least this move will reduce overall number of state run agencies, and Interfax is private with 30 different news agencies, so they can easily pick up the slack. As well with others. Would be interesting to see if others will start a new news agency in Russia.
