Cablevision Adds Russia's CTC-International

CTC Media's CTC-International channel has launched on Cablevision Systems' iO Russian package, the programmer said.

CTC-International first launched in the United States on Dish Network USA in 2009. It later signed a distribution deal with Time Warner Cable and with Russian Media Group.

"We serve many different communities and continue to bring our customers more of the unique programming they want and enjoy," Bradley Feldman, Cablevision's VP, Video Product Management, said in a release. "We are proud to bring the full breadth of entertainment, public affairs, nature and science and sports programming in native languages from all over the world into the homes of our multicultural customers."
