Operator MegaFon announced the upcoming merger of two online movie theaters, MegaFonTV and Start.
At the same time, the main video service for MegaFon customers will not be MegaFonTV, but the merged Start, which after the merger will have a new offer: under a single subscription, premieres of original projects will continue to be released, Internet broadcasting of a wide package of TV channels will be launched, and the supply of foreign films and series will significantly increase.
Until 2022, MegaFon was developing two video services for its subscribers. Start, which is 50% owned by MegaFon, offered premieres of original TV series and movies of its own production, while MegaFonTV served as a video marketplace with a wide range of titles, from TV channels to new movies and TV series.
The transition to the new format is planned for May. At the same time, MegaFonTV will be supported for subscribers throughout the year, and current users will be offered special conditions for the transition to Start.
