Orion Express goes multiscreen_17.12.2015

The Russian DTH platform Orion Express has launched a multiscreen service named Telekarta Online.

Quoted by ComNews, the company’s DG Kirill Maknovskiy said that its aim is to maintain the platform’s subscriber base and maintain customer loyalty.

He added that Orion Express’ revenues this year are unchanged on those in 2014 and will amount to over R3.3 billion (€43.5 million), and it should end the year with 2.8 million subscribers.

Maknovskiy stressed that its subscriber growth is, at 8% this year, higher than the market as a whole.

Telekarta Online is available as a free download for Orion Express subscribers and allows over 50 TV channels, 20 of which are also found on the first and second DTT multiplexes, to be viewed simultaneously on up to three devices where there is an internet connection (3G, 4G or WiFi).

Although the service itself will be offered for free up until January 10, it will then cost R99 a month.
