RTL finds going tough in Russia - 23-April-2011, 19:45

RTL Group has failed to gain a foothold in the lucrative Russian TV market despite its co-ownership of two key interests.

Quoting RTL Groups VP corporate communications Oliver Fahlbusch, Kommersant reports that the media group sold its 50% stake in the Luxembourg-registered company Content Union to its co-owner Continental Media, one of the assets of the operator of the Russian DTH platform Raduga TV, in July 2010.

Content Union is a producer and distributor of four Russian thematic channels and RTL Group is understood to have made 400,000 from the sale.

RTL Group entered the Russian market in 2005 by buying a 30% stake in Ren TV from its founders for 67 million.

However, last April it signed an option with Ren TVs majority (70%) owners to sell its 30% interest in the next three to five years.

Since then, it has stopped reporting Ren TV in its results.
