As of the end of August, Russia Today is now available to viewers in New York and New Jersey as Channel 135 on Time Warner Cable.
Russia Today is an English-language 24-hour news channel providing a Russian view on world events. It started broadcasting in December 2005 and has bureaus in Moscow, Kiev, Vladikavkaz, Tbilisi, London, Paris, Washington, New York, Jerusalem and Cairo.
The station was founded by the Russian national television service RIA Novosti and is somewhat controversial for its close ties to the Kremlin.
