St. Petersburg, the head of the Russia broadcasting projects abroad, Sergey Dolgopolskiy SG Group, said that it had reached an agreement with the Bangladesh-based conglomerate Beximco to offer the first satellite DTH in the country and said the test transmissions will begin shortly.

"We hope to have more than 1.5 million subscribers, after five years, but this figure is pessimistic for me.  I think the potential market is much more important than that," said Dolgopolskiy. According to him this will be first ever satellite TV service, DTH service in Bangladesh.
