The TNT business model is a television network. Its main source of income is advertisements. The TV signal passes through a system of the TNT’s regional TV stations as well as to the company’s regional partners. Those, in turn, get part of the advertising time within the framework of the content provided by TNT. The TNT channel delivers its signal via a number of satellites in four different orbits that allow its 27 television stations and more than 350 subdivisions to receive it in the corresponding time zones. The TNT signal is then received and further redistributed by the local network stations broadcasting to most big cities as well as 5,900 smaller communities of the Russian Federation. TNT reserves 100% of authors’ rights to all original shows and owns two of the largest production companies in the country: Comedy Club Production and Good Story Media.

On February 6, 2012, in response to the numerous requests of the TV viewers, the TNT channel started broadcasting in the “Rainbow TV” channel system with the help of the ABS-1 satellite in the GMT +2 time zone on the 6th of February, 2012 (since December 5, 2014 the “Rainbow TV” broadcasting has been discontinued). April 1, 2012 Tricolor TV turned its TV channel into a paid one. On April 4, the TV channel interrupted the signal delivery to the operator, and 7 days later it returned to the free mode. On the wave of success of the Moscow series “Univer” and the “Swell Guys” filmed in Perm, (though one of the seasons of this series was also made in Moscow), TNT started filming the sitcom called “Girrrls” sitcom, which started on air in April 2012. The story of four girls from Saratov who hav come to win the capital and are renting one apartment for all is not original, this romantic comedy with some elements of melodrama does not contain anything unusual for this kind of movie, but its heroines attract the attention of the young, mostly female audience: The series was shot in Moscow, with Moscow actors, and the choice of Saratov as the girls’ “small homeland” was due to the desire to make the movie sound authentic, since the speech of the inhabitants of this provincial city does but slightly differ from that of the Russian capital. The series has been shown for 5 years in a row, the sixth season must start in autumn 2017. On December 14, 2012, the TNT television channel was included into the second multiplex set of the Russian digital television. On January 27, 2013 the channel TNT showed the first three series of an experimental fiction series called “Through my Eyes”, a kind of pseudo-realistic thriller, the shooting of which was finalized in 2011. This series was the first in the world, completely shot using a “POV camera” technique. The narrative is nonlinear; every series is shot “from the point of view” of one of the characters and thus reveals his or her personality and history. In a small town there happens a series of strange and sinister events: people disappear, die or suddenly fall into a strange coma-like state; then, coming back to normal, they gain superhuman abilities, and a mysterious “black smoke” has something to do with this. The idea of the project belonged to Ilya Kulikov, and Zaur Bolotayev was promoted director of “Through my Eyes”. He was also the production director, although the shooting process was carried out by the actors themselves, with the help of a camera fixed to a specially designed contraption. “Through my Eyes” became the first product of the TNT, advertised as a “movie series”: The company “Fox Television Studios” bought the rights to create an American adaptation of the series also named “Through my eyes”, and it was announced that the filming process had been started. The producer of the project is Lawrence Bender, a regular partner of Quentin Tarantino. The TNT also considered the possibility of shooting a second season of “Through my Eyes”, but finally the idea was given up, and the series contains 19 episodes with an open ending. As an experimental format, “Through my Eyes” played an important role in the TNT movie production, the impulse the creative team of the channel received while working on this product, eventually spurred some great dramatic formats to appear. In July 2013, Roman Petrenko took up the chairmanship of the TNT-TeleNet board of directors, and Igor Goichberg became its new general director of TNT.
