Poland’s National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT) has received a total of 24 bids from over 10 companies for four channels on the upcoming eighth multiplex (MUX-8).

The applicants include A+E Networks’ AETN Poland, along with Scripps Networks Polska, the new owner of TVN, one of the country’s top two commercial broadcasters.

Among the other bidders are Polsat, Discovery Polska and TV Puls.

A dispute over the award of the operator’s licence to Emitel makes it unclear when MUX-8 will eventually be up and running.
