PlatformaHD, one of the bigger Russian satellite TV provider, has announced together with Samsung Electronics and General Satellite the first 3D channel in Russia and Eastern Europe! Subscribers will be able to use modified satellite receiver HD-9300 from General Satellite and 3D TV Samsung – PS42B450B1W, PS42B451B2W, PS50B450B1W, PS50B451B2W, produced and available in Russia, or active 3D-glasses SSG2000.
Currently there is no any information about the date of starting 3D broadcasting and the price for subscription. Hope it’ll be available this Summer at the latest. Also it’d be interesting to see what another big player on the Russian satellite TV market NTV+ will do.
