The Polish TV and film production company ATM Grupa has complained about the inactivity of the National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT) in awarding a terrestrial licence extension to its thematic channel ATM Rozrywka.
Wirtualne Media reports that ATM Grupa initially filed a complaint with the Provincial Administrative Court in Warsaw on November 12. It has now asked the court to oblige KRRiT to consider the application and to say that the regulator’s inactivity is in gross violation of the law.
ATM Grupa wants KRRiT to suspend a tender it is organising for a digital terrestrial frequency currently being used by ATM Rozrywka.
KRRiT says that ATM Grupa was late in submitting its licence extension application for ATM Rozrywka.
The channel is distributed on the first multiplex and its current licence expires in February 2021.
