What is Tricolor TV? Satellite TV Provider Review

We closely monitor new electronic devices, especially those that are created and manufactured in Russia. Just such a new product will be discussed today. This is a General Satellite digital set-top box model GS B626L. Used to watch TV and movies from satellite and via the Internet by clients of the multi-platform operator Tricolor. The software and hardware part is a product of the GS Group, direct manufacturing is carried out by the enterprises of the Technopolis GS innovation cluster in the Kaliningrad region.

Coverage area

The second one works primarily with the Far East.

The second satellite broadcasts in the Far East

The final coverage area is all of Russia.

Satellite Internet service is available only on the Express-AMU1 basis. The official coverage map looks like this.

Satellite Internet is not available throughout the country

Interactive television is available throughout Russia through any provider.

Where can I buy

If you are already a Tricolor customer, then this GS B626L model can be purchased at a special price under the exchange program directly from the operator in company showrooms, in its online store or from dealers throughout Russia. New customers of the service will be able to purchase a similar model GS B627L or a simpler model GS B623L there - check prices on the Internet or directly from sellers. For large wholesale supplies, you can contact the distributor -.

Equipment and appearance

The delivery package of the device is quite ascetic, everything is strictly to the point: set-top box, power supply, remote control (classic, well known from other set-top boxes) and the necessary documents. Including the most important one - the user manual, which we always recommend reading before turning on any device. If it is more convenient from the screen, there is a QR code in a prominent place - a link to the electronic version.

The console has a simple and attractive matte body. On the front panel there is a digital display, on the top there is a button for switching between operating mode and standby mode. On the side there is a slot for a conditional access smart card.

Everything you need, as expected, is on the back panel. On the left edge you can see two connectors for connecting cables from the satellite dish converter. Nearby are a couple of USB connectors, HDMI, Ethernet and a socket for the power supply. As you can see, the set-top box supports both satellite connection and Internet connection, both together (“hybrid”) and separately.


Tricolor is the largest Russian satellite TV operator.

The brand belongs to, which began its activities in 2005. Almost immediately after registration, the first broadcasts were launched on the basis of the French satellite Eutelsat 36A. Its coverage area included a large territory of the European part of Russia. There were few channels (5) and broadcasting was free.

Customers showed interest in the new company and by the end of 2006 there were 150 thousand subscribers.

The transition to paid broadcasting packages occurred only in 2007. By that time, the subscriber base already numbered almost half a million users.

In 2008, the Tricolor provider expanded its coverage area by leasing the Bonum-1 satellite.

The company actively implemented new technologies - a transition to MPEF-4 was made, radio channels were included in the list of available ones, the list of channels was increased, and new service points were opened. At the same time, prices remained affordable. Thanks to this, the subscriber base grew rapidly. In the first half of 2012 it was more than 10 million people.

In the second half of 2012, Tricolor satellite television switched to the digital broadcast format - HDTV and launched broadcasts of foreign TV channels. By the end of the year, there were already 25 HD channels on the broadcast list.

In 2013, the operator was the first among all Russian companies to broadcast in UltraHD 4K quality.

In 2015, Tricolor tariffs were brought to a single unified format throughout Russia.

Starting from 2021, the company is introducing a package of TV channels in UltraHD quality. In the same year, subscribers began transferring from obsolete equipment designed to work with MPEG-2 to new ones.

In the second half of 2016, the provider announced the launch of a satellite Internet service with two-way access and its own online cinema.

In 2017, Tricolor released a mobile application for its subscribers, through which it became more convenient to manage your personal account and pay for services. In the same year, the operator announced the start of broadcasting via the Internet without satellite dishes.

In 2021, the company rebranded and changed not only the logo, but also the name. Instead of "Tricolor TV" a more universal brand "Tricolor" appeared.

How to transfer Tricolor to digital television

Users do not need to think about how to set up Tricolor for digital television. And in situations where their receivers suddenly stop receiving the signal, it is better to look for other sources of problems:

  • lack of money in the account;
  • malfunction of the set-top box;
  • lack of smart card activation;
  • carrying out preventive maintenance by the provider;
  • outdated receiver software.

The latter is especially relevant. To make sure that an update is necessary, you will need to find an item in the receiver menu indicating the current software version (usually called up by the “status” button) and compare the information found with what is indicated on the company’s official portal. After that, all you have to do is turn on the information channel and wait.

In other cases, you need to call the contact center for free and find out why the broadcast disappeared. Consultants will figure out what happened and help restore broadcasting.

Only useful applications

The set-top box runs on its own software platform, StingrayTV. Sections of the main menu are, in fact, applications with certain functionality. Take, for example, the children's section: this is an application whose interface generally replicates the “adult” one, but in the first place are TV programs and films for children, and access to other content and, most importantly, the settings page is limited and hidden. The Kino Online application provides access to the Tricolor online service of the same name.

There are separate programs for viewing photos, playing music and videos - that is, the set-top box can easily switch to media player mode. The only recommendation is to use USB drives with the EXT4 file system. There are even some gaming apps! You never know who will be overwhelmed by the desire to play Tetris on TV. The device also allows you to control the Tricolor Smart Home system.

A nice feature of the set-top box is the highly functional “Personal Account” application. It contains not only all the device settings, but also full access to management. So you can pay for their use (or even just top up your account balance) without leaving the console interface.

Cable kit

As stated above, the set of cables supplied with Tricolor equipment is sufficient to organize a small home network. It includes:

  • coaxial cable 10 meters long;
  • 2 F-connectors for connecting the receiver to the antenna unit;
  • twisted pair cable 10 meters long;
  • 2 RJ-45 connectors for crimping twisted pair cables;
  • analog audio and video cables for old TVs;
  • HDMI cable for connecting modern TVs.

Important! Depending on the receiver model, the number of items in the supplied cable set may vary. If it is necessary to lay long signal transmission routes, the subscriber will need to separately purchase a wire of the required type and length.

Receiver options

The receivers that Tricolor offers can be categorized in different ways. The first division is based on the number and type of tuners.

  1. Receiver for one TV with two independent tuners. Allows you to view different channels on TV, tablet, smartphone.
  2. Model for 1 TV with one tuner. The user can view on the screen of a smartphone or tablet the same channel that is turned on on the TV.
  3. A client-server system of two receivers with independent channel selection and a separate tuner for free viewing of broadcasts on a tablet or smartphone.
  4. Client-server system without the ability to connect tablets and smartphones.

Another division of models is a description of their hardware capabilities. Today subscribers are offered:

  • models with the ability to receive broadcasts in HD format;
  • devices that allow you to write a TV broadcast to a memory card and simultaneously watch another channel;
  • solutions for working with satellites of other providers;
  • receivers capable of working with analogue television signals.

The average user can buy a relatively inexpensive (within the provider's offer) standard kit, which will include a Tricolor TV satellite dish and a receiver capable of receiving all channels in normal quality.
