The Polish National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT) has confirmed the award of a national DTT licence to the Lux Veritas Foundation on the country’s first multiplex (MUX-1).
In a statement, the regulator says this is in response to recent information that has appeared in the media.
It goes on to specify the method of payment for the 10-year licence, which will allow the foundation to broadcast its channel TV Trwam.
Furthermore, it says that such charges do not apply to the public broadcaster TVP, which is currently distributing TVP1, TVP2 and regional services on MUX-1 in accordance with legislation pertaining to DVB-T.
Separately, the president of the Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) has announced a consultation for what will be Poland’s first auction of 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz bands.

The regulator describes the move as “very good news for all users of smartphones, tablets and multimedia services.”
