DIRECTV Drops Russian-language Channels


Today DIRECTV announced that they are dropping all Russian-language channels from their lineup effective immediately. The following is a copy of the notice they sent to all DIRECTV FOR BUSINESS and DIRECTV Hospitality dealers.

Effective today, we no longer offer Russian-language programming on the DIRECTV platforms, as it consists largely of Russian government-owned channels.

Russia Direct, Russia Direct II and RTR-Planeta A La Carte packages have been removed and the content is no longer available via a DIRECTV subscription. Russia Today TV (channel 321) has been removed from all base programming packages as well.

The customer’s account will be adjusted with a full month’s credit for charges related to this programming update and they will no longer be billed for the channels going forward. Expect to see this adjustment within 1-2 bill cycles.

Affected programming on DIRECTV channels 2140-2148:
  • Carousel (channel 2145)

  • Channel One (channel 2140)

  • Dom Kino (channel 2142)

  • Muzika Pervogo (channel 2143)

  • NTV America (channel 2146)

  • Rossiya 24 (channel 2147)

  • RTR-Planeta (channel 2141)

  • RTVi (channel 2148)

  • Vremya (channel 2144)
