As one of the top five most-cited television channels in Russia, TV RAIN (ТВ ДОЖДЬ) conducts investigations, airs interesting reports, hosts interviews, and gives a platform for real, lively debates unlike anything else seen on Russian TV channels. TV RAIN has managed to avoid censorship, providing a forum for those opposition leaders denied access to pro-government mass media, as well as offering independent views on current events in Russia and the world and covering sensitive political topics like Crimea, Donbass in East Ukraine, Islamic State and more. Besides the news, TV RAIN also covers music and movies, travel, social projects, lectures and round table discussions.
Through a partnership between TV RAIN and East View, institutions may access the TV RAIN archive of thousands of TV programs, reports and exclusive interviews through an institution-wide site license via IP-authentication.
