The leading Polish DTH platform Cyfrowy Polsat has no interest in entering the country’s cable market, according to its president Dominik Libicki. However, it cannot rule out buying the number two DTH operation Cyfra+ should it come on the market.
In a wide-ranging interview with Parkiet, Libicki nevertheless stressed that no negotiations on a possible acquisition of Cyfra+ are currently taking place.
He added that Cyfrowy Polsat ended 2010 with over 95,000 mobile telephony and over 25,000 internet subscribers (its TV customer base stood at 3,434,000 at year’s end).
Its plans for this year include the launch of a catch-up TV service over the internet in Q4.
Cyfrowy Polsat is set to complete the acquisition of its parent company Telewizja Polsat this March in a deal worth PLN3.75 billion (€960.8 million).
