Russia possesses a vast broadcasting market undergoing rapid change. Both freely accessible and paid content is widely available from cable TV, terrestrial, internet protocol TV and satellite platforms. Competition is driving new network deployments and network modernisation, as incumbent broadcasting network operators face challenges associated with digitising analogue networks and increased competition from new market entrants, particularly from the telecom sector.
