News Corp prepares Polish HD move

The News Corp-backed Polish regional station TV Puls plans to launch two HD channels.

Speaking to the local press, a representative of the station said that it is in the process of applying to the National Broadcasting Council (KRRiT) for licences for the channels, one of which will be news-based based and the other entertainment.

He added that the two channels would initially be distributed by satellite and could make their debuts either later this year or at the beginning of 2009.
