Russia’s State Duma has passed a bill banning advertising on cable and satellite pay TV channels, which is set to take effect from the beginning of next year.

According to reports, the bill is designed to level competition between Russia’s basic, free-to-view, cable channels, and cable channels that make money from ads and subscriptions.

The only thing worse than being delivered advertising on a service that you pay a subscription for is when you’re forced to sit through those stupid anti-piracy messages before the movie starts at the cinema or before you can play a DVD you’ve bought.
