The new Polish DTH platform nC+, formed by the merger of Cyfra+ and n, will officially make its debut on March 21.

Speaking in the local media, Christian Anting, a member of the board at the platform and responsible for its content and offer, said that the date was symbolic in that it not only marked the start of spring but also the 18th anniversary of Canal+’s entry into Poland.

He also said that the new platform would have the best offer on the Polish market. Furthermore, there would be “great elasticity” in the offer, with customer being able to choose from a large number of packages.

Subscribers would also only require one remote and one set-top box to receive the service. Promotion of nC+, which has just got under way, shows that the offer will include six Canal+ -branded channels, with Canal+ Gol and Canal+ Weekend not present.

It will also include several Canal+ thematic channels, nSport HD and several channels, including Discovery Channel HD, hitherto available on only n.

The new platform will launch with around 2.6 million subscribers, some 1 million fewer than the market leader Cyfrowy Polsat.
