1+1 media

1+1 Media Group is one of the largest media conglomerates in Ukraine. The General Director of the Group is Aleksandr Tkachenko.[1]

Structure[edit]

1+1 Media Group comprises eight Ukrainian TV channels, 1+1, 2+2, TET, PLUSPLUS, 1+1 International, UNIAN TV, Ukraine Today and Bigudi. It also controls the online news platforms TSN.ua, UNIAN, Glavred.info, Telekritika and Dusia.

The structure of the group includes the production company '1+1 Production' which is responsible for the creation of in-house TV formats and the adaptation of international formats for broadcast on the several TV channels of the group, including reality and dating shows, talent shows, scripted realities, TV series, sitcoms, documentary and sports programs, original programs and information broadcasting. The production company not only covers in-house needs, but also works with external customers.

Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoyskyi has financial interests in the group.[2]

Expansion out of Ukraine[edit]

After launching 1+1 International in 2006 (see section below), which is aimed at the Ukrainian diaspora, the group will start its first attempt at gaining part of the international TV market by launching Ukraine Today. Ukraine Today is the first Ukrainian non-stop news channel. Launched in August 2014, it offers a biased view of current events happening in Ukraine, in Eastern Europe and Post-Soviet states. Privately owned and managed, it was created mainly in response to Russian disinformation surrounding the Ukrainian crisis.[citation needed]
