Watch Live Russian TV On YouTube!

All these years of studying Russian, dear readers, and how could I have forgotten this amazing resource: live Russian TV on YouTube. Both Russia 24 and NTV have live streams.

I haven’t found any other Russian channels with live streaming (yet), but there is a ton of other Russian content on YouTube as well. I haven’t actually watched a lot of Russian stuff on YouTube as of late, so I’ve been rediscovering all sorts of Russian goodies on there. I’m rather partial to Russian documentaries, too, and there are a ton of those on YouTube.

I put a red box around it just because. Click to see larger.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the nasty little notice YouTube tacked on below the Russia 24 live stream. In fact, I think it’s below all Russia 24 videos. It reads “VGTRK is funded in whole or in part by the Russian government” and includes a link to Wikipedia about VGTRK (VGTRK is the abbreviation of the holding company of Russia 24). Thanks a lot, YouTube. I wonder if they put a notice below videos from leftist American media outlets that says “this company is a mouthpiece of the Democratic Party.” Somehow, I think not, and that’s too bad because such information is more valid and relevant than what is provided on the Russia-24 video.
