Russia Today in StarHub TV

It's in English, though. How interesting this Russia Today is? Well it's a news channel after all. So there.

But Wikipedia article on Russia Today has this to say: a CBC News story contains allegations that RT is "a continuation of the old Soviet propaganda services".

A new 24-hour English-language news channel, Russia Today, will debut on StarHub TV Dec 1 - and is free to viewers.

With the launch, StarHub will be the first pay TV operator in Singapore to offer viewers here round-the-clock news and infotainment programmes from a Russian perspective, said the telco in a statement on Thursday.

Russia Today is delivered 'live' from Moscow. Available on StarHub TV Channel 174, Russia Today is the sixth channel to join StarHub's existing tier of Complimentary International Channels. The other channels in this tier are Arirang TV, Australia Network, Deutsche Welle, KBS World and TVRI.

'StarHub is delighted to offer our StarHub TV customers with comprehensive, credible and in-depth news coverage with a fresh perspective from Russia. Always on the lookout for quality programmes from across the globe to present to our valued customers, StarHub once again breaks the barriers by offering Russia Today to customers at no extra charge,' said Ms Ong Bee Lian, StarHub's Vice President of Home Solutions.

Russia Today's content line-up covers a wide array of genres including news, entertainment, arts, technology and business.
