Kosmos TV bowing out

August 13, 2012

Russia’s oldest pay TV service Kosmos TV, is shutting down after the frequencies it uses to broadcast were awarded to VimpelCom, Megafon and Rostelecom for LTE services.

Kosmos TV has said it will assist its subscribers in migrating to the replacement service offered by Moscow city operator MGTS.

Kosmos TV was launched as a joint venture between Metromedia International and RTRS in 1991, with Metromedia’s stake later being acquired by AFK Sistema.
