Pravda published an interesting article last week describing the DTV transition in Russia. The article, Digital Television to Sweep Away the Old Analogue TV, notes that Russia approved the "Concept for the introduction of the terrestrial digital transmission in the Russian Federation" in 1998, shortly after the U.S. began its transition to DTV. The Russian program set a deadline of 2015 for converting all Russian TV transmitters and receivers to digital.

According to the article, digital TV is already available in St. Petersburg (34 channels) and in Moscow, where there are six channels for mobile receivers.
