Poland will see the launch of a new, satellite-delivered regional station this autumn.
According to Gazeta Wyborcza, the service will be named CSB TV and target the Kasubian minority living in the north of the country. It will be operated by Media Kaszëbë, which already owns a radio station serving the minority, some 200,000 of which speak the Kasubian language.
However, it will also carry some programming in Polish in order to increase it potential audience to around 2 million.
CSB TV will be a FTA service on Hot Bird. Media Kaszëbë, which is cooperating with the Silesia-based regional station TVS, has decided to not to distribute CSB TV via cable, DTT or the internet due to the high level of satellite dish ownership amongst the Kasubian minority, many of who live in rural areas.
