Due to trouble with delivery of Nagravision/Syster decoders from France,
encryption of NTV+ channels is delayed. Exact date of encryption is
currently unknown, but 
we probably will be able to see NTV+ channels encrypted on january 15,
1997.
Currently, 4 NTV+ channels are broadcasting in clear SECAM.

Some time ago NTV+ announced that it will encrypt it's channels in
Nagravision / Syster. In Europe Nagravision/Syster decoders are not sold to
subscribers, but NTV+ 
plans to sell them. As we were told in "NTV-Sat" company, which sells kits
for NTV+ reception, decoder will cost 120 US$, and monthly subscription fee
will be 10 US$.
Nagravision / Syster Encryption system was chosen because it is known to be
"unhackable". But "Defiant" internet server, devoted to hacking encrypted
channels, very well-known in Russia, has everything required to create or
buy pirate decoder.
Because of speeches we could hear from NTV+ owners, we can expect big
"pirate war" in Russia soon.

"MK" newspaper reported that NTV+ plans to switch to MPEG-2 by the end of
1997.
Probably, this information is an unchecked rumor, because any other source,
including NTV, didn't announce any digital plans.

Probably, many sat-tv watchers in Russia remember heavy advertisement of
companies, which installed 0.9m dishes for "HotBird reception". Lucky
owners of small dishes were promised to get lots of channels from HotBirds
1,2,3,4 and 5.
Also, companies said that no additional hardware will be required.
Finally, after long delays, Hot Bird 2 is in orbit. Probably it didn't
shock Russian satellite audience the way it could, because 13 deg.east
position looses popularity in Russia due to big success of NTV Plus.So, the
Hot Bird 2.Only 4 of 20 "super powerfull" transponders are aimed for
analogue broadcasting. But this is not the most
bad thing about it. For watching most of Hot Bird's 2 channels, a viewer in
Russia
has to own a really huge dish, because Superbeam of Hot Bird 2 in Moscow
and
Central Russia is much more weak than Superbeam of Eutelsat II F1.
So, Russians probably can't expect something really good from 13 deg. east
position.
We hope that NTV+ and other Russian satellite projects,that probably will
appear very soon, will create a big choice of interesting channels for
Russian viewers.
