RBC TV launches video mobile live streamRBC TV launches video mobile live stream Starting in June 2004, it will be possible to watch the first Russian business channel RBC TV on mobile phones. MegaFon subscribers will be the first to have access to this service. MegaFon expects about 10,000 people to subscribe to the new service.
"We have carried out serious modernization of the GPRS equipment and our capabilities have increased considerably. Not a single subscriber will have problems with downloading the video stream," said Roman Prokolov, an advisor to the MegaFon Moscow General Director. According to MegaFon representatives, the pricing policy of the company will be quite democratic. One-month subscription will cost about $23 regardless of the amount of the transferred data.
"RBC has always been up-to-date, using the latest achievements of technological progress. Once, we were the first Russian information agency to have created an Internet server, to have established information mailing to pagers, and finally, to have launched a business channel. To create trends, according to which the market will be developing, is the principle of our work. Mobile telephony is being developed very fast and today, it renders new services to customers. In the near future, it will be difficult to imagine a businessman who would not be able to watch the RBC TV business channel at any time and place," RBC TV General Director Artyom Inyutin said.
