The board at the Polish public broadcaster TVP has decided to launch HD DTT versions of its two main channels TVP1 and TVP2 on June 1, 2012.

TVP1 HD will be distributed on the country’s first DTT multiplex (MUX-1) and TVP2 HD on the third (MUX-3).

According to TVP, the launch of the HD DTT versions of the channels will allow viewers to watch Euro 2012, which is being hosted jointly by Poland and Ukraine and starts on June 8, as well as the London Olympics from July 27 until August 12, in the highest quality.

TVP already includes a HD channel named TVP HD in its portfolio of services.
