The Polish public broadcaster TVP will launch a virtual channel and tourist app on its hybrid platform later this month.

While the channel, known as TVP Bieszczady, will only be distributed on TVP Stream between July 25 and 27, the app, dedicated to tourism in the Bieszczady region of Poland, will be available from July 21 until at least the end of September.

It will be possible to view TVP Bieszczady, which will be on air for five hours daily, online and on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Separately, TVP has claimed record online viewing figures for the Netherlands v Argentina World Cup semi-final, which was accessed 370,000 times on its website.

The match also had almost 5.9 million viewers on TVP1 and TVP Sport.
