Satellite Television operator MagtiSat has launched re-broadcasting of Georgian channels. In March 2012 the company included First Channel of the Georgian Public Broadcasting and Russian-language channel Perviy Informatsionniy Kavkazsky (PIK) (First Caucasus News) PIK in its service package. MagtiSat subscribers now have an opportunity to watch TV company Maestro too. All of the three channels are included in the Start (monthly fee GEL 10), Start + (monthly fee GEL 25) and Basic (monthly fee GEL 35) service packages.
According to Tatuli Ghviniashvili, head of MagtiSat PR Service the talks are being on with other Georgian Channels and they are going to be included in the package in the near future.
MagtiCom-owned television MagtiSat launched its broadcasts on January 23, 2012. The new television is being on air through the ASTRA communications satellite owned and operated by SES. In addition to the aforementioned three Georgian channels MagtiSat broadcasts 77 foreign channels.
