The introduction of digital TV services is forcing a growing number of small operators to leave the cable market in Ukraine.
This, reports Kommersant, is likely to benefit larger players such as the market leader, Volia.
Smaller operators have also been hit by recent regulatory changes
that have seen the number of must-carry channels increase from 16-19,
depending on the region the operators serve, to 42, including all that
have recently received digital licences.
