Poland will see the launch of a new music channel this coming Monday (December 14).
According to Wirtualne Media, the service, known as Rebel.tv, will be operated by 4fun Media and have a mostly rock music format. It will initially operate on a trial basis, ahead of what is expected to be the award of a satellite licence from the National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT) in the New Year.
Distributed FTA via Hot Bird, Rebel.tv will be offered by all Polandís DTH platforms, along with several cable operators.
In the latter instance, it will be offered by Toya at launch, followed by UPC and Multimedia Polska in January and Aster and Vectra in February.
