ITVP, the interactive TV service operated by the Polish public broadcaster TVP, has started to make content available on a VOD basis. It now plans to also introduce a TimeShifting option in mid-April. The service began to carry news and information-based programming in February and it currently constitutes a large part of its output. Three such programmes – Wiadomosci, Panoroma and Teleexpress – are the first to be offered as a VOD option. Separately, the Polish news channel TVN24 has launched a multimedia information portal named TVN24.pl. According to local reports, the national commercial station TVN plans to introduce a similar portal in Q3 this year. Although the start-up costs of TVN24.pl have not been made public, the service is expected to break even by 2009.
