TVP goes for sport & HD

The Polish public broadcaster TVP’s supervisory board has approved a budget for this year.

Wirtualne Media reports that the channels TVP Sport and TVP HD have been allocated a combined total of PLN89.6 million (€19.1) – understandably much less than the flagship channels TVP1 (PLN179.3 million) and TVP2 (PLN159 million), though considerably more than TV Belarus (PLN22 million) and TVP Kultura (PLN13.8 million).

Without cutting back its expenditure this year, TVP faced the prospect of making a loss of over PLN300 million.
