A new channel dedicated to jazz will make its official debut in Poland on February 20.
According to Wirtualne Media, 80% of Jazz’s airtime will be allocated to the genre, with the remainder earmarked for modern (10%) and improvised (10%) music.
Quoting Agnieszka Bania, the head of Jazz, it adds that the channel has no links with any foreign groups or concerns and will be entirely self-funded.
Jazz secured a 10-year licence from the National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT) in October 2017.
It will operated by Berenikafilm, a company owned by Bania, and initially distributed by Vectra, one of Poland’s leading cable operators.
