IPTV has proved slow to develop in Ukraine, where the number of households receiving services legally is estimated to be no more than 150,000.
This figure, provided by IPNET CEO Dmitry Grischuk and quoted by Mediasat, is equivalent to just 2% of all broadband users.
However, the true figure is likely to be lower as the market is still in its very early stages.
Only a few companies offer legal IPTV services.
In addition to IPNET, they include TeNe T and Trinity in Odessa and mariupol, respectively.
