TVP’s new English channel Poland In has officially made its debut.
It was launched on November 11, the 100th anniversary of Poland’s independence, and is available as a streaming service on Polandin.com, as well as on YouTube and Facebook.
Commenting on the development, Maciej Stanecki, TVP’s VP, said: “we would like that thanks to us foreigners will be able to discover everything that is most interesting in our country, what we are famous for, what we are proud of and what is new. We want to show Poland, which they probably do not know. As it is in reality. Therefore, when creating a channel schedule, we follow the slogan ‘The best of Poland’.
“The intention of its creators is to journalistically show social phenomena from a certain distance. In a legible way for English-speaking audiences, not included in the daily, current topics of the country.”
He added: “The internet portal Polandin.com will be an integral part of the channel. Since the launch of the Poland In English service in spring, we have been asked by our colleagues from the EBU about the possibility of programme exchange between English-speaking channels in Europe. Now we can fully join in international cooperation by providing high-quality information materials about our country. Our plans for 2019 include the launch of a mobile app and extending the channel’s streaming servioce to satellite”.
