In particular, according to the edition, the cable operator "7-th channel" has included in its broadcasting net Russian "First Channel", TV Center and several other channels. Users have to pay extra four lari per month (about two dollars) to watch them.
Recall, in late October, Georgian Russian-language TV channel PIK appealed for the help to the newly-elected parliament of Georgia, its chairman David Usupashvili, as well as to the U.S. ambassador to Georgia Richard Norland.
The authors of the appeal called the PIK "unique Media project in the history of the Caucasus" and stressed that the primary audience of the channel are ethnic minorities living in Georgia, population of the Caucasus and former Soviet republics, as well as Russian-speaking immigrants in the West.
The channel staff explained the U.S. Ambassador Richard Norland that the PIK was very significant for Georgia and for the entire region.
