How to watch Russian TV - paid and free
I had a lot of requests about Russian TV. Well, there are two ways you can watch Russian TV:
1) Order it from DirectTV which has a pretty decent selection. They say that they carry RTR Planeta, Vremya: Retro Channel, Muzika Pervogo, Dom Kino, C1RW ... 7 in total. Cost = $45 plus taxes.
You can also get Russian Channels from DishNetwork. There are several option you can choose from, the most expensive is $32 plus taxes and you are getting 5 channels, but in my opinion they are better than those from DirectTV: EuroNews in Russian language, Inter+, NTV America (which I like very much), RTVI, and TVC (popular channel in Russia).
2) You can watch Russian TV for free online using your high speed internet, I found this page with Russian channels - http://www.russian-translation-pros.com/free-russian-online-tv.html.
These channels are all for free, the quality is not that great, but hey it's free!
