Cyfrowy Polsat looks to the future

November 12, 2009

Polandís leading DTH platform Cyfrowy Polsat is pushing ahead with ambitious plans despite reporting mixed financial results earlier this week.

According to Wirtualne Media, it will launch a VOD service before the end of the year, employing a transponder on Hot Bird it secured in May.

However, the real changes will come in Q2 next year when the platform plans to introduce a triple play service.

This will be principally aimed at customers living in villages, small towns and the outskirts of large cities where internet provision is currently poor.

It will be sold through over 200 mPlus stores, in which Cyfrowy Polsat currently holds a 45% stake but is expected to buy outright.
