The Polish public broadcaster TVP will relaunch its Ultra HD channel TVP 4K this Sunday (November 20) to offer coverage of the Qatar World Cup.
The channel will begin terrestrial trials on November 18, replacing TVP1, TVP2 and TVP Info on the public broadcaster’s test multiplex. However, TVP World, TVP Dokument, TVP Polonia, TVP Nauka and TVP Rozrywka will continue to be distributed on the latter in HD.
TVP 4K will also be offered by several dozen cable and satellite operators including Canal+, Vectra (Vectra, Multimedia Polska, SGT, Evio and Elsat), Orange, Toya, Inea, T-Mobile, Avios, Promax, Telpol and Telewizja Kablowa Chopin.
Commenting on the relaunch, Marcin Klepacki, the director TVP distribution, said: “TVP is the leader in the distribution of the highest definition television signal. The restart of the TVP 4K channel is a response to the expectations of football fans all over Poland. All broadcasts and retransmissions of matches from the World Cup in Qatar will be made in UHD quality, thanks to which football fans – as in the case of the World Cup in Russia in 2018 and Euro 2020 – will be able to feel the unique atmosphere of this football festival”.
