ASTANA, February 27 (Itar-Tass) — On Tuesday Kazakhstan’s major cable television operator Alma TV said it would not stop rebroadcasting Russia’s three channels – RTR-Planeta, Rossiya-24 and Rossiya-K.
Earlier the republic’s largest cable TV operator announced it had to stop broadcasting the three channels, as it failed to reach a compromise on “mutually advantageous terms” for cooperation with the All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK).
The parties agreed to continue rebroadcasting RTR-Planeta (travelogue channel), Rossiya-24 (news channel) and Rossiya-K (culture channel) while the negotiating process is underway.
The parties will maintain further talks “to find mutually advantageous terms for cooperation in 2012 in the soonest possible timeframe,” Alma TV said in a statement placed on its website.
“Alma TV will continue broadcasting channels RTR-Planeta, Rossiya-24 and Rossiya-K in 2012,” the statement read.
