Commenting on the launch of the new service, Orion General Director Kirill Makhnovsky noted: Orion is very interested and enthusiastic about partner projects that create additional value for our subscribers, relying on the existing infrastructure and technical capabilities of the satellite media platform. The project with the satellite operator Konnect, Russia is just about that.
