I get very different information about NTV Plus digital plans, but now this
can be said for sure - NTV Plus will broadcast in digital in 1998.
Everything will begin even earlier - in 1997 (latest information says about
october-december 1997). Exact number of digital channels, broadcasted by
NTV Plus - 16. The choice is not yet made for
system of broadcasting, but personally I think that NTV Plus will use
American digital equipment. NTV Plus was always trying to make the price
for reception kit as low as possible. And in USA, digital recievers for
local packages are much cheaper then European DVB recievers.
Also, about "free analogue-digital replacement". No way. Digital recievers
will be only sold. NTV Plus is also thinking about giving these devices for
a rent.

Well, finally one of the most scandaling russian newspapers, MK, started to
show it's attitude to satellite television. First article was not so bad,
it was about NTV Plus and it's future plans, the first "digital
expectation" was also there. But there was one bad point - one of NTV Plus
people (or MK by itself - ed.) showed his bad attitude to Hot Bird. For
some period of time everything was quiet and peacefull. 
And, couple of weeks ago, MK presented the article about popular Moscow's
MMDS system, Kosmos TV. MK called THAT as "Television of XXI century". Of
course, I checked out that article, and several times was shocked pretty
heavily. Probably, that material was printed as an advertisement, but I
don't think so. In short -  a man who knows nothing about satellite TV
takes an interview from Kosmos TV head. I discovered many new and
interesting things - for example, I didn't know that "from home you are
able to recieve only 4 satellite channels" (I watch more then 100), I
didn't know that "Discovery and MTV are heavily encrypted on all satellites
and you will never be able to get them from anywhere but Kosmos TV" (I
watch both in clear from Hot Bird 1 using my d-box) , and the final
discovery was that "You can watch Formula-1 only from Kosmos TV, which
shows it from RTL channel". That respected man might have forgotten about
dannish DR1, which can be easily opened using a d-box, and SuperSport,
pirate cards for which are sold everywhere.
Generally, I think that MMDS systems are not rivals for satellite
television. 
By buying  a reception kit for MMDS you kill your watching future. You
loose your perspective. Your MMDS provider broadcast 5 channels - well, you
will not get more in your entire life (if you've paid for such period).
In satellite television world every minute something new appears. New
channel hit your screen. They are much better then old channels you've been
used to. Number of channels grow every minute, and you're "a program
director" for yourself ! Do not let some "wise guy" make your viewing
choices for you - make them yourself !
MK's attack to satellite TV continued after NTV Plus bought exlusive rights
on showing World Hockey Championship. Well, of course. We are so much used
to free stuff - to watch commercial movies on ORT, Formula-1 on RTR,
English Premier League on Channel 5. And suddenly - we need a dish and a
subscription to a pay-tv package ! The logic of MK is understood. I, from
my side, think that channels
like ORT and RTR have no future. The future belongs to DTH Satellite
projects like Premiere, DF-1, Sky, Nethold and so on. This is the way it's
got to be ! Watch what you like round the clock, and don't wait for another
sunday evening on ORT to watch another movie !
So, position of MK is understandable. It wants to say "Satellite television
is not for Russia".  Again we are forced to go to the past. Again technical
progress is not allowed into Russia. But this time we seem to refuse from
it by ourselves ...

In one of last sat-moscow issues I have written that connection of your
d-box to a PC
will not give good results. I made a mistake. After a good instruction by
Mike Bauerfeind in TELE-Satellit 3/4 '97 everything started to work, and I
started creating 
a software package that would make controlling the D-box from PC very easy.
This project is called D-BOX WIZARD, and first test(beta)-version easily
switches 
between some non-standart signals on Hot Bird 1 satellite. Next versions
will be more universal.

Well, I think, analogue satellite television fans lost MCM forever. This
channel had the best signal strength among others (of course, not speaking
about NTV+ Music - it requires 0.45m in Moscow).  At the moment MCM is
broadcasted as part of  "International French Package" on Hot Bird 1 in
MPEG-2 in the clear. Rumors say that MCM sent wrong (or not programmed)
cards to their subscribers, so it will take some time to replace them.
Today the second channel of this package - CFI Europe -
stopped encryption too. But here is the important question: for how long we
can watch
musicvideos, movies and news from France in clear ?
And by that time, two new round-the-clock music channels from Poland with
good contents appeard on satellites. The first one, Tylko Muzyka, currently
broadcasting
in the test mode in clear MPEG-2 on Hot Bird 1, 11.454 H, SR 6.111, FEC
3/4, VPID 4FC0, APID 4FC1.  This channel reminded me MTV UK plus come
artists from Poland. There are quite a lot of Polish music on second
channel, Atomic TV (clear MPEG-2, ASTRA 1F, 12.382 H, SR 27.500, FEC 3/4), 
but foreign videos on this channel reminded me VIVA 1.
By the way, VIVA 1 was back on Hot Bird 1, 11.371 H, but it was very hard
to recieve it - every time you had to do a "Red Menue Channel Search" (look
in sat-moscow digital special vol.2 for more). Also, the picture was mixed
with a testcard,
and there was no sound. I think, these tests are performed by a channel,
which bought unused bandwidth of transponder 9 from Eurosport. This can be
explained by presence of analogue noise on digital picture of VIVA 1 -
there was a noise on bright 
yellow and red-coloured parts of the picture.
Still continue to be be in the clear channels VH-1 UK and MTV UK. It is
hard to say how long they gonna stay in the clear, but clear transmissions
of VH-1 Germany and MTV Germany, I think, were busted by DF-1, which
broadcasts these channels too.
Finally, from my point of view, I think that generally digital satellite
television gives quite a wide choice of music channels: MCM, MTV, VH-1,
Tylko Muzyka, Atomic TV and possibly in addition to that VIVA 1.
