Polish DTT finally launches

Following months of delays, digital terrestrial broadcasting was finally expected to make its debut on the 30th September, reports Broadband TV News. This was made possible by an agreement between the national transmission company Emitel and national commercial broadcasters Polsat and TV4 on the 29th September and TVN and TV Puls earlier in the week.
The four broadcasters will each contribute two channels to the second multiplex, which, according to a statement from Emitel, will be launched from transmitters in Warsaw, Poznan, Zielona Góra and Zagan on the 30th September.
Poland’s DTT service will eventually offer viewers around 30 channels.
