    I would like to know what are the most popular shows on russian TV right now? Or shows that we're very popular.

    Are translated shows from the US popular?

    Thanks !

    TOO MANY shows from the US (voice overs) on Moscow TV. Pimp My Ride, The Bachelor, Married With Children, Simpsons, Smallville, Charmed, etc. Also the same American commercials (in Russian). Plus every American B movie ever made along with every movie by the California governor.
    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.

    Now, Moscow ain't Russia. In St Pete we get tons of first class British entertainment from the Office to Blackadder and beyond.

    Are those shows on cable? We can get any shows from any country with cable or dish but very few British shows on the regular TV channels.

    In St Pete we mostly have cable. Very few households stick to terristrial. It's so boring and low quality. With cable you get all terristrial + tons more. And there's bags and bags of British programming on every day. To us, Double Petersburgers, cable is regular. Every district has literally dozens if not hundreds of cable operators and TV studios (that's in addition to a wide selection of terristrial and satellite channels that you get on cable), in some districts I believe they even have a bunch of TV channels that broadcast entertaining images for your pets. My block of flats is huge enough to have a small CCTV studio of its own with a lot of amateur yet quite high quality children and DIY programming. Also, we have our own interactive message boards based on teletext. I have two video on demand systems in my apartment- one at the level of the district cable operator and one inhouse system, run by the above mentioned CCTV studio. The latter offers an excellent choice of old Formula 1 videos.

    I've tried cable and satelite TV in both the US and Moscow but found that I never have time to watch much TV. So I cut the service and saved my money. Although I do miss the 24 hour news channels.....

    JB, what was your choice of satellite in Moscow? Don't tell me you subscribed to the tacky NTV+...

    I can only shudder of the thought that a russian guy is dubbing blackadder... not only is translation of the series almost impossible (alot of play on words), but the intonation blackadder uses is half the fun!

    You rarely remember facts about Russia, do you, JB? And this time you couldn't even be arsed to google around for some sat TV provider's name. Or was your contact in Russia suddenly unavailable for comment? OK, OK, you've talked yourself out of this one. I assume it's OK for ladies not to know such technicalities.

    What, you get undubbed English shows? How? You got satellite or what? As far as I saw on cable TV in st. pete, it was not only all dubbed, but muffled too.

    Your right VM, I let my husband take care of the guy stuff. TV cable, computer cable (I think we had starlink but I don't know if that is the name of the company that provides the cable instalation)and all electronics. I am also letting him do the total remont of our new flat. I'm currently sitting in California working on my tan while he rips out walls and floors.

    Ooops! I tend to speak in a mixup of Russian and English. I have developed this bad habit since my husband wants to learn English and we end up speaking to each other in this crazy mix.

Anyone who thinks he's something runs a bloody cable TV network. Some show their channels dubbed, some don't. Some offer you subtitles mixed into the signal, some offer you subtitles that you can switch on/off at will. And in a variety of languages. And I'm not talking about sat TV here - sat TV is a different story. I repeat - many cable operators in St Pete offer you a fantastic choice of great British shows in the original language.
