Poland should launch a further DTT multiplex and generally distribute more digital channels terrestrially, according to Father Rydzyk, co-founder of the Lux Veritas Foundation.
In a wide-ranging interview with Nasz Dziennik, he said that this would be in keeping with the DTT strategy adopted in countries such as Ukraine, the Czech Republic and Croatia and allow the Foundation to apply fro a licence to operate a children’s channel.
The Lux Veritas Foundation recently secured a licence on the first multiplex for its channel TV Trwam after a long campaign and according to Father Rydzyk is now ready to launch on the multiplex.
However, the actual timing depends on when the public broadcaster TVP vacates the slot.
He also revealed that the Foundation is paying almost PLN16 million (€3.8 million) for the 10-year concession for TV Trwam.
