Watch Russian tv by satellite in the uk

Sept 2018 Update

The Hotbird (Russia 1 package) channels have been around a long time and are well established. 10 New Russian ( and Ukraine) channels added last  month on the Astra satellite .  if these are a permanent addition, it brings the total number of Russian language channels up considerably. A 2 lnb dish is required (channels on 2 satellites ) see Package Russia 2a. There are also a few more  channels on the Eutelsat satellite which have a strong signal and can be received on a 3 lnb dish . For those needing both the Russian AND Ukraine channels, that is also possible – details are on the Ukraine page.
