The Polish public broadcaster’s English language channel TVP World has significantly expanded its reach.
It is now distributed terrestrially in Poland on MUX-6, hitherto known as an experimental multiplex and used solely by TVP. It replaces TVP Kultura, which has been moved to MUX-8.
Up until now, TVP World has only been available online and distributed by operators such as iliad’s UPC Polska and the incumbent Orange Polska. The channels is also available online globally, on Channelbox in the UK, Sling TV in the US and terrestrially in Lithuania and Estonia.
Separately, Presserwis reports that TVP World will receive PLN74.5 million (€15.6 million) in funding from Poland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MSZ) this year.
