Polsat to launch global channel

Polish TV broadcaster Polsat is looking to create new channels including a “global” channel for expat Polish viewers around the world.
The broadcaster has applied to the Broadcasting Council KRRiT, Poland’s regulator, for a new transmission licence for a Poland World channel. Currently the broadcaster offers Polsat-2 to overseas viewers in the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
Back in 2009 Polsat was granted a licence for Polsat International but the channel did not come to air.
Polsat itself has been on air since 1992 and is now owned by DTH broadcaster Cyfrowy Polsat which is quoted on the Warsaw Stock Exchange.
