Decree of December 13, 2021 No. 2276

In 2022–2023, all-Russian compulsory public television channels will be able to receive funding for the purchase and installation of new equipment for showing content with subtitles. The rules for granting subsidies for these purposes were approved by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

We are talking about hardware and software systems that allow you to broadcast closed captioning. Such subtitles can be turned on if necessary, but in normal mode they remain invisible.

Closed captioning is now used on eight TV channels with the maximum audience coverage. These are Channel One, Russia 1, Match TV, NTV Television, Petersburg – Channel Five, Russia K, TV Center, as well as the Karusel TV channel for children and youth. Special equipment for them was purchased in 2016–2017 at the expense of the federal budget. Now it needs to be replaced due to the expiration of its service life.

Funding for these purposes has already been provided within the framework of the state program “Accessible Environment”.
