The Polish film channel Kino Polska has been acquired by SPI International for a fee believed to be in the region of PLN12-16 million (€3.10-4.14 million). SPI will now add Kino Polska to a package of services it plans to operate in Poland including Filmbox and Nonstop Kino, both of which are scheduled to make their debuts on April 2. A further channel – Nonstop Kino HD – will follow shortly afterwards. Kino Polska was launched in 2003, and according to data produced by TNS OBOP had a national audience share of 0.34% last month. Its previous majority owner was BB Investments, a company based in the western city of Poznan. SPI International already offers Filmbox and Nonstop Kino in neighbouring Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
