    Russian tv programs on Ukrainian TV

    Dear Sirs,
    thanks for the opportunity to partecipate at this interesting site.

    I live in Italy and I am trying to study (improve my very poor) russian.

    I love to watch tv in the language I am learning (I speak 4 languages).

    In italy it is easier to get ukrainian tv (sirius satellite 5 east and amos 4 west) than russian, but I found some difficulties to keep only the TVs showing mainly russian tv.

    Please, Can anyone suggest me the best ukrainian tv channels where to get more/ mainly russian programs or programs in russian language.

    Best Regards
    I have already notice the differences between da/net/spasiba and the ukrainian word. Even the i agaist the russian I

    No need for the polite greeting. I think there is a problem at the moment, getting Russian speaking channels in Ukraine, due to the political situation. Allegedly the Russian speaking channels were blocked by the new government in Ukraine. Not sure about the details.

    I'm surprised you can't get the Russian channels from Russia in Italy. Russian satellites for domestic use have a huge overspill into surrounding areas. You can (well at least could) pick up Russian domestic TV far outside Russia - for example in Scandinavia it's loud and clear if you aim the dish in that direction. But you may have to switch to a different satellite, which might not carry the other channels you want, like film and news in English,

    Moldova also has a couple of local Russian speaking channels and can get Russian channels, so check what they are called and see if they broadcast on satellite. You might have better luck with that, and it's not censored.

    Almost impossible to know your individual situation; try a satellite forum.
    Or if it doesn't work in your particular area, just hook up your computer to your TV, that way you can stream any channel you want from the internet to your TV.

    Thanks,
    I have already 15 channels, but when I watch a lot of good stuff but I am not sure if it is in russian or ukrainain, I thought to ask to people with better knowledge.
    In Moldova there are 5 channels broadcasting mainly in russian on 16 east.
    I am expert about satellite, but not enough about russian...
    Regards

    You can easily hear / see whether it's Russian or Ukrainian without knowing either. The difference is as pronounced as perhaps Italian vs Portuguese or something like that.

    Ukrainian has the sound "h" in it. It also has the sound "ä", which is AE joined together.

    Russian when spoken in a standard accent, as in the news or on TV, has no "h" or distinctive "ä" sound. Note: Russian allegedly has no accents! So everybody speaks the same way. However the one distinction is that some people in Ukraine and Belarus say "h" instead of "g" in some words. You won't hear that on TV though.

    Written Ukrainian uses an i with TWO dots on it. Russian doesn't use this letter.
    Written Ukrainian also uses "Э" but turned in the other direction. Russian shows this letter turned the opposite way to a normal E.

    Russian uses "И" and "Ы" which I don't think Ukrainian uses.

    You can go to the Ukrainian section on this forum to see what written Ukrainian looks like.

    With this information you should be able to determine whether something is in Russian or Ukrainian despite not knowing the language.

    Or better yet, start studying Russian and you'll quickly learn to tell it apart from Ukrainian!

    Here is a Russian news channel that streams live online.

    I have never watched Ukrainian TV in Ukrainian but no doubt you can google and find it some channel that streams.

    Let me correct you a bit:

    Russian и = Ukrainian i
    Russian ы = Ukrainian и

    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    Dear bytemare, I am interested in:
    2+2
    TET
    ICTV
    Novoi kanal
    Inter+

    For the others, it was easy to count them in (Inter, Enter) or out (1+1,).

    Any idea about the children channel: pixel, qtv and plus plus?

    Thanks!!!!!

    Thanks blacksnow.
    But on ukrainian tv, easily reachable in Italy, there is really a lot of good stuff.

    Secondo me vale la pena insistere, ci sarà un ucraino russofono su questo sito.
    ciao
