REN-TV (Russian: РЕН-ТВ) is one of the largest private federal TV channels in Russia.
Its target audience is a young to middle-age city worker. Even though it focuses mostly on the audience in the 18 to 45 demographic, REN offers programming for a wide range of demographics, since the target viewer has a family and respects family values.
By many political opposition groups REN TV is considered to be "one of the last bastions of free media" in Russia. It is the only channel up-to-date which covers the meetings of socialist and liberal groups and takes interviews from prominent opposition leaders.
