The leading Polish DTH platform Cyfrowy Polsat is to drop four BBC channels from its offer.

As of February 1, it will no longer carry BBC Entertainment, BBC Knowledge, BBC Lifestyle and CBeebies. In their place will come Disney Playhouse, FOX, National Geographic and National Geographic HD.

It is understood that Cyfrowy Polsat considered the price the BBC was charging for the channels, which have been distributed by the platform since December 2007, to be too high.
