Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – Till the end of this year, TVP, the Polish state-owned television, wants to offer TV programs via internet. It may disagree with TP telecom.

 

TVP has been working for 1.5 year to offer TV programs via internet.

“In the first quarter of next year, we will be able to broadcast to consecutively 20,000 people, more than the present abilities of TP”, Leszek Bogdanowicz, iTVP head said.

At the end of the first quarter, TP had 1.3 broadband internet lines which allow 10-15,000 people to watch TV at the same time. TP is going to launch ADSL this fall. The company refused to comment on the internet TV project.

 

TVP, which realizes its project on the network of Pionier, wants to offer its channels to all potential users. TP would like to limit the offer to the subscribers of its broadband internet. The two entities may clash over the way sales from broadcasting the TV channel should be split.

“The question is how TP will acquire the rights for the signal and how it will share its sales with broadcasters. The latter would be deeper involved in the distribution of the singal”, Leszek Bogdanowicz believed.

The majority of broadcasters hope to enlarge their technical presence thanks to TP. Canal+ and TVN have already signed agreements with TP. According to “Puls Biznesu” sources, TP has also agreements with TV5, Euronews or Deutche Welle.
