Business Description

Industry: Entertainment » Broadcasting - TV
Compare:TV, CBS, GTN, SKDTY, TVBCY » details
Traded in other countries:LU5.Germany
CTC Media, Inc., was incorporated in 1989 and commenced television operations in May 1994, initially broadcasting from its first owned-and-operated station in St. Petersburg to 22 cities across Russia as a "superstation" a single station that retransmits its signal to remote locations. In December 1996, the Company launched CTC, a national network broadcasting by satellite from its center in Moscow. The Company launched Domashny in March 2005 and acquired DTV in April 2008. The Company has modeled its business on the US broadcast television networks. CTC manages its network programming centrally, own and operate stations or unmanned repeater transmitters in major cities and expand its broadcast coverage through agreements with independent affiliates, which allows the company to enhance its coverage without incurring incremental infrastructure costs. In exchange for the right to broadcast its signal, the company allows its affiliates to broadcast local advertising during designated time windows, from which they derive revenues. At CTC's Domashny and DTV Networks it also pays fees to some independent affiliates of these networks for broadcasting the Domashny or DTV signal. The Company's networks' management is responsible for programming, marketing and promotion for CTC, Domashny and DTV, as well as relations with its independent affiliates and with advertising sales house. The Company currently operates three Russian television networks: CTC, its flagship network, offering entertainment programming targeted at 6-54 year-old viewers, Domashny, a network targeted at 25-60 year-old women, and DTV, a network currently principally targeted at 25-54 year-old viewers. The Company competes with other broadcasters and other forms of media for advertising spending, and with other broadcasters for audience share, programming rights, affiliate stations and broadcast frequencies in particular VHF frequencies in key markets. The Company has registered trademarks for the "CTC", "Domashny", "DTV" and "CTC Media" name and logo in the Russian Federation.
