After China, Its Russia Who Wants To Regulate OTT Video Services

Roshan Dwivedi Published on : 09 December 2015

Are we really surprised? NO? Thought so.

After China, it’s Russia who wants OTT platforms regulated. Russia’s Ministry of Communications is discussing the possibility of obliging OTT services to carry national channels currently distributed on the first and second DTT multiplexes.

According to RNS and AKTR, the ministry has been consulting with ISPs and TV channels on the matter. OTT services can currently distribute must-carry TV channels, but only if they are licensed pay-TV operators.

They should also have agreements with subscribers, and the order and content of the TV channels must be changed, too – not only for streaming broadcasts, but also for time shifting. However, the discussions only related to streaming and not online movie services.
