    Fraud Alert

    Made a subscription, and the same day found out my internet connection wasn't fast enough. Day after, send a cancelation email, got a reply that cancelation will be made. 3 months after (that's right, 3 months), they direct debited my bank account for 90 Euros. Costumer support was very rude and threatening, claiming it was "indemnity cost." Stay away.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Pretty good overall

    • Chicago, IL,
    • Jun 24, 2015

    We were watching Kartina TV for over a week at the place we were staying. There was a huge variety of shows, movies, talk shoes, TV series. Definitely a lot to chose from. Most of the time you're never bored.

    The only flaw I noticed was that from time to time the system would freeze and needed to buffer to catch up. It's not too often but at least once a day, could get somewhat frustrating.

    But overall, good. Definitely worth it.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    We have had the Kartina TV for 3 years. It has been dependable and broadcasts nicely, including HD. The subscription sign up is easy and when we have had some customer service questions he was very helpful. I would recommend it for anyone who wants many Russian TV channels.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    A lot of Russian channels

    • Rego Park, NY,
    • Jun 9, 2015

    I really enjoy the large variety of channels that Kartina TV offers. There is always something to watch. I also enjoy a great selection of on demand movies. The great thing about Kartina TV is that there are no service agreements or contracts. So when I am traveling for a few months, I just pause my service.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    A good product for most Russian people

    • Brooklyn, NY,
    • Jun 9, 2015
    Kartina really provides what this description says. The setup process wasn't too difficult or time consuming. The quality in HD is fantastic. We have been living in America for a very long time so it was very interesting to see all the News, cooking channels, Russian TV series and everything else. Not something our Young kids would probably enjoy since they grew up here - but for the older generation or people who recently came from Russia, this is a great thing for the home. TONS and TONS of movies, more than we could even handle. The only down side was we had a bit of a difficult time at the beginning of getting a smooth stream, the picture was great but would buffer every few seconds. However, it later stopped. Price is fair too in my opinion.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Horrible

    • Belgium,
    • Apr 18, 2015

    The TV keeps freezing every god damn second. You also can't use two devices at the same time, otherwise the TV keeps freezing! I have been arguing about this problem with my family. Definitely don't recommend this EVER!
