Russia’s third-placed search and portal operator Rambler is to launch a major TV and movie site – described as a “Russian Hulu”.

Programming comes from Russia’s Star Media, TV Scope, TNT, NTV and CTV. "By the middle of 2009, it will contain approximately 2,000 hours, all premium TV series as well as full-length Russian feature films and TV movies," Rambler says. "The television channels rarely hold non-linear rights so we are dealing directly and only with the content owners who hold the relevant rights for our use."
