The Russian language channel ETV+ will soon be available to viewers throughout the whole of Estonia.
In a statement, Levira says the channel, which is operated by the Estonian public broadcaster ERR, is currently distributed on Multiplex 6. It will be switched to Multiplex 1, which carries ERR’s two other channels ETV and ETV2 and covers 100% of the country.
Commenting on the development, Indrek Saar, Estonia’s Minister of Culture, said: “The Estonian state must offer all interested persons the opportunity to watch free high-quality and independent Russian-language TV channels. With the additional funds, ETV + will be coming to every home next year, and thereby increase the distribution of the common information space across Estonia”.
