Poland’s National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT), whose latest term expired on August 4, has put forward a series of proposals for the regulator to work on in the years 2017-19.
They include the strengthening of public service media and resolution of its financing, including the problems associated with receiver licence fees; protection of local programming and local broadcasters; and lowering the entry barriers to satellite and cable broadcasters.
They also include ensuring an appropriate method of applying the principle of must carry/must offer that takes into account the development of DTT and changes in media consumption.
The KRRiT would in addition like to see viewers have access to programmes other than linear broadcasts, such as pay-per-view. Other proposals include developing cooperation in the media sphere on an international level.
