Russia’s MTS and the Walt Disney Company signed a deal to deliver Disney’s movies and TV shows via the Internet in Russia through MTS’ portal Omlet.ru. This may not sound too exciting for anyone living in the Western hemisphere, but for Disney – that’s another story. With this deal they’ve found a solid partner to help them monetize a portion of their content, which let’s say is known as a solid material for pirates in the country.
In total, Omlet.ru users will be able to access around 100 Disney’s movies, including such hits as “Surrogates”, “National Treasure”, “The Proposal”, “G-Force”, “Pirates of the Caribbean”, the animated film “Up”, “Lost” television series and more. Disney will keep updating the site with new content, and the plan is to have DVD releases simultaneously available for download or streaming on the MTS content portal. During this year, MTS expects to deliver some of the most anticipated Disney releases to Omlet.ru, including “Alice in Wonderland”, “Toy Story 3″ and “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”.
As for the user options, they [users] can either download or steam movies from Disney, with the price for download ranging from 100 to 150 rubles and for streaming from 60 to 75 rubles. Older hits from the Disney catalogue will cost 75 rubles to download and 40 rubles to stream.
Omlet.ru content is available on PCs and mobile devices, allowing downloading or streaming of movies both at home and on-the-go.
