Polish viewers have declared themselves overwhelmingly in favour of a TVP satellite platform offering free to view channels.
The results of a survey undertaken by TNS OBOP and published in Wirtualne Media show 85% support for such a service, with 58% of respondents confirming they have heard of the TVP platform launch.
This took place on September 15, while the survey was undertaken at the beginning of this month.
Since then TVP has taken the unusual step of re-encoding the channels it had offered for free, prompting disbelief and protests from many sections of the TV industry.
At the PIKE conference in Ossa earlier this week, TVP said it would shortly provide an official statement on the controversial move.
Speaking to Broadband TV News at Ossa, a senior media executive described the TVP platform as now being “a dead duck”.
