The first direct-to-home (DTH) satellite TV service in Bangladesh will be launched in April 2016.

The service under the name of RealVU will initially be available in cities and metropolitan areas, with country-wide coverage later.

The DTH service will cost around 300 Bangladeshi taka ($3.83) a month, and provide subscribers with over 100 channels.

These comprise more than 26 local channels and a number of major international networks, along with five HD channels.

The price of the set-top box required to receive the service has not yet been disclosed.

RealVU is a joint venture between Beximco and the Russian investment and industry holding company GS Group. It follows the award of a DTH licence by the Bangladesh government in December 2013.
